Since the beginning of 2013, gold’s price action has been irrational. The fundamentals are getting better for gold in respect to demand and supply, but we see sudden, wild swings, often to the downside, on no news and for no apparent reason.
Those who closely follow precious metal prices will agree with me on this: many times in 2014, it was common to wake up in the morning to new gold prices that are sharply down. When you look into the price action, you find a mysterious seller. He sells a significant amount of gold contracts on the paper market at times when not many participants are around to buy…so prices plunge.
