During the course of the past week, gold markets have been extraordinarily robust, as risk aversion has diminished significantly. It appears that we are attempting to reach the $2000 mark, but it will be extremely challenging to do so. In spite of the possibility of a short-term retracement, it is evident that the market has decided to move higher, and gold must be viewed through this lens.

Pay strict attention to the Federal Reserve next week, as there will be a great deal of commotion surrounding the decision and the subsequent press conference. Ultimately, the market will have to ascertain what the Federal Reserve is willing to do, and as a result, a great deal of US dollar expectations will be built into that assumption. Obviously, the US dollar and gold can both rise at the same time, but I believe that, for the foreseeable future, people will seek to protect their wealth. However, we are approaching a formidable resistance barrier.
If there is a pullback from here, I anticipate strong support near the $1900 level. The $1900 level is a large, round, psychologically significant number from which we had previously attempted to move away. Ultimately, this is a market that has been on inertia for a while, and I believe we may now experience a slight decline. Nonetheless, if we were to surpass the $2000 threshold, this could truly take off.
