The Daily Gold
The precious metals sector remains in a correction, and as long as the 200-day moving averages hold, a bullish consolidation that began last September.
Sure, Gold made a new high and is still holding around the previous high, but the rest of the sector has not confirmed that strength. When Gold is outperforming Silver and the gold stocks, it is not a bullish signal for the short-term.
With that in mind, we can look ahead to anticipate potential catalysts that could push the sector into breakout mode and to new highs.
Real interest rates must decline for Gold to rise. A bullish catalyst requires an acceleration in inflation or inflation expectations or lower interest rates.
