Three words spring to mind. Just three words: Precious. Metals. Suck.
The most damning evidence recently is that during the market chaos on Monday, precious metals were weak. And during the market strength/relief rally recently, precious metals have been even weaker. So: damned if you do, damned if you don’t.
I was cheerfully short gold yesterday. I covered at a good profit. I stated on my Tastytrade show that I was “no longer bearish” on gold.
