PREDICTIONS FOR GOLD AND SILVER AFTER THE U.S. STRIKES SYRIA FOOLISHNESS OF THE MOMO CROWD $GLD $SLV $GDX $GDXJ

Please click here for the very short-term annotated chart of gold futures.

Gold futures spiked over $1271, only to fall back to about $1253.

Please note from the chart that VUD indicator does not show consistent buying. VUD indicator is the best indicator I know of measuring real buying and real selling in real time. Technical pattern of note is that gold crossed to the upside 200 day moving average.  This was bullish.  Now gold has crossed 200 day moving average again to the downside. Before putting too much faith in technical patterns, please see Mom and Pop Gold Traders’ Lunch Eaten By Professionals, How Not To Become a Victim. ETFs of interest are gold ETF (GLD), silver ETF (SLV), gold miner ETF (GDX), and junior gold miner ETF (GDXJ).
