Gold Prices Are Rising: Here’s How to Play the Rally
While the broader market slumped in May, one natural resource mounted a huge rally.
Gold prices rose above $1,300 per ounce.
We’ve seen gold outperform the markets several times in 2019.
The SPDR Gold Shares exchange-traded fund (ETF), which tracks the gold bullion price, rose 2.4% in May. At the same time, the S&P 500 fell nearly 6%.
Many analysts pegged May as one of the worst trading months since 2010. But gold traders stayed ahead of the noise and profited while the markets sank.
Traders are looking for safe-haven investments. And gold is a solid hedge in volatile times.
We asked our expert Chad Shoop for his view on gold’s continued rise. And he explained one key factor he’s watching before going all in:
I’m bullish on gold. I believe the precious metal is on the cusp of a long-term bull market. But it has a strong resistance around $1,350 an ounce. I’m just starting to add exposure to the gold market. I want to see it break above that level before I go all in. That is my cue for getting extremely bullish.
Chad has recommended several profitable gold stocks over the past three years. Back in December 2018, he recommended a metal miners position that netted his readers gains of more than 30% … in less than three months!
It’s why he’s confident in gold’s potential to rally higher this year.
And our senior analyst John Ross offered this observation on the yellow metal’s rise relative to the U.S. dollar’s drop:
The price of gold jumped by almost 5% in just the last two weeks. Now, it has the chance to prove its mettle. There is a lot of technical resistance for gold to overcome in the weeks ahead. But there’s something that leads me to believe gold will continue to move higher. When gold jumped this week, the U.S. dollar fell. That’s because the backdrop is changing for the U.S. dollar. The yellow metal rises when the dollar falls because of how interest rates and growth influence investor expectations.
John tells us he plans to recommend a gold fund to readers of Winning Investor Daily next week.
And he’s excited to bring you more ways to play this precious metal.
