Gold prices ended the U.S. day session solidly higher and hit a 3.5-month high Thursday. ‘The falling dollar is intriguing for the gold trade we are in, the price of crude, and for future potential upward movement of equities pricing,’ said Gary Wagner, editor of the popular newsletter, thegolddorecast.com. Silver prices also scored a 3.5-month high Thursday. Safe-haven and technical buying continue to support the yellow metal amid volatile world stock markets that presently still have a downside bias. April Comex gold was last up $15.30 at $1,156.60 an ounce. March Comex silver was last up $0.126 at $14.86 an ounce. ‘The modest rise in the yield of 10-year U.S. Treasuries would suggest that not all safe havens are created equal. Gold and silver seem to be exerting a strong...

Kitco News speaks with technical analyst Gary Wagner to see where he thinks gold will close for the week. After seeing its biggest one-day drop since December, the yellow metal moved higher Friday as U.S. equities were clobbered. Kitco News, January 15, 2016.

It’s all about the Fed next week, with the Federal Open Market Committee meeting concluding on December 16 and markets anticipating the first interest rate hike in nine years. What could happen to gold? According to longtime technical analysts Gary Wagner, the metal could see more downside pressure next week. ‘If we get liftoff as anticipated we could see further erosion in gold,’ he told Kitco News Friday afternoon. ‘I would really want to watch the key levels at $1,061, and $1,050,’ he added, stating that these have been the recent lows in gold. February comex gold futures saw some volatility early Friday when the metal rallied up to a high of $1,078.60 an ounce, but has now settled a few cents off that level.

After Friday’s big move, could $1,000 gold still be in the cards for 2015? Gold ended the week up 2% after coming close to a six-year low earlier in the week. Despite Friday’s price action, Gary Wagner, editor of thegoldforecast.com, said that $1,000 gold cannot be ruled out.

In this edition of Kitco’s Chart This, Wagner comments on whether gold is saying, 'who cares' to the rate hike or whether the U.S. Fed’s plan was priced in long ago. Gold’s rally started in earnest Friday, following the release of November’s nonfarm payrolls report, which was relatively in line with expectations. The data showed that 211,000 jobs were created in November with...

As gold prices continue to struggle following Thursday’s fall to a near 5.5-year low, one technician says he wouldn’t be surprised to see the metal move lower. Commenting on famed economist Nouriel Roubini’s call for $1,000 gold in 2015, Gary Wagner told Kitco News that ‘he could absolutely be correct.’ According to Wagner, it is important to look at the intraday low of $1,073/oz gold hit Thursday. ‘That’s a critical point in that it creates a double bottom…secondly, it is a 61% retracement of larger rally from about $550 up to $1,920/oz,’ he explained. Looking at the charts, Wagner says his range for gold right now is between $1,072-1,100, but he is even considering the $1,000 support level. ‘I think the action that we’ve seen over the last couple of weeks with the dramatic decline is...
