We have a light volume / Holiday shortened trading week in the U.S. Mkts this week , so In todays report I just wanted to point out a few things that are Noteworthy.
BRIEFLY let me just mention that the SWISS Referendum. It is a vote that takes place on Nov 30 deciding 2 things actually. 1. Whether or not the Swiss National Bank should be barred from further selling of their gold reserves. 2. It also would mandate that they need to more than Double current reserves! THIS VOTE takes place .....................SUNDAY. Its important to note because it may influence how you are positioned going into the weekend. I believe the vote could be a "catalyst" for strong POP in Gold Monday or possibly even a sell off into a somewhat early Daily cycle low. If you want my opinion, I think a NO VOTE is expected and so its already baked in. A YES vote would cause a strong rally , because there are bullish implications ( Swiss Bank Cant sell Gold / Swiss Bank must begin buying / Accumulating Gold (they currently hold 8% of assets in Gold and the vote would mandate accumulating and holding at least 20% over time). There is more , but that's enough to know for now. Here is how I am looking at GOLD from day to day.
GOLD Please notice the "NOISE" zone. (Click chart)
It seems that when GOLD drops only $5- $8 , I get emails asking for an update. I am told that accumulation is lightening and this is apparently bearish, etc. Realistically, GOLD cannot stand at 1 price all week, it has to be allowed to rise & fall...to fluctuate (likely that could occur until that NOV 30 vote). Please notice this GOLD NOISE ZONE in the chart above . Gold in this area need no update, its acting normally. A break out or break down might need to be addressed.
