Gold Down From 4-Week High But Still Ends Week In Positive Territory | Kitco News
After hitting a four-week high earlier this week, gold was down on Friday but was still preparing to end its second consecutive week in positive territory, showing gains of 0.5%. Spot gold was last down $6.10 at 1148.00 an ounce. Gary Wagner, editor of thegoldforecast.com told Kitco News on Friday that an ‘interesting scenario,’ is brewing for the metal. ‘My belief is that once gold hit $1,092, it was a significant bottom -- once we bounced off of that we started to build a base. I think we are continuing to move on that rally,’ he said. ‘We did get a nice bounce as the market came down earlier, it thought it would go to $1,115 – but we have a great support at $1,121’ he added. As for Fed Chair Janet Yellen’s after-market speech on Thursday, Wagner viewed her talk as a litmus test to see how U.S. equities would react. ‘The equity market today rallied strongly and it rallied a couple hundred points. Her speech really sent bullish sentiment to the dollar. So even if gold is going to maintain an upward momentum, it will be done swimming upstream. So this is the push and pull we are looking at,’ he explained. Kitco News, September 25, 2015.
