Gold Settles $8.20 Lower ... ($1613.90)

Today's August Gold futures traded choppy $19.70 range as appeared traders may have been motivated to take profits after Friday's mammoth $57.90 rally. It is my opinion that traders and investors alike may have been looking for a continuation of Friday's rally starting with the Asian sector starting Sunday night. However, this did not materialize and with Crude Oil prices trading an 8 month low of $81.21 barrel overnight and seasoned gold bugs have learned to take profits when the opportunity presents itself. Traders and global investors are expecting more monetary stimulus as worries regarding the growth of the U.S economy. However, Gold traders have a long memory and until the FOMC takes action I believe the traders of precious metals will remain tentative and aggressively take profits when presented. We all remember February 29th

when the FOMC announced that the economy was growing at a moderate pace and therefore there would not be a need for more stimulus in the near future. With that announcement Gold broke over $100 from high to low....Long time Gold traders will remain disciplined and trade the action.......
