Gold on Thin Ice this Busy Data Week; HIts 3.5-Mth Low: Veteran Trader

from Kitco NEWS

lass=”” >Gold prices settled the day nearly unchanged after hitting a 3.5-month low this week, but one veteran investor remains optimistic. The metal is showing some initial signs of a bottom as prices have managed to hold above $1,200 an ounce and settled the day in positive territory, ending a nine-day losing streak. August Comex gold futures settled Tuesday at $1,217.50 an ounce. ‘We’re pretty oversold here,’ Todd ‘Bubba’ Horowitz, chief investment strategist for, told Kitco News. ‘The problem is on a trading standpoint, we’ve really come straight down from $1,300 so we’re really due for a good dead cat bounce probably up to $1,230 or $1,240.’ For longer term investors, Horwitz said he would continue buying at these gold levels. ‘I wouldn’t initiate my entire position here because we could go a little bit lower
but I am certainly a gold bull.’
