NEW BULLISH Plays
iShares Gold Trust - IAU - close: 14.39 change: +0.12
Stop Loss: 13.75
Current Gain/Loss: + 0.0%
Time Frame: 9 to 12 weeks
New Positions: Yes, see below
Why We Like It:
The IAU is an exchange traded fund designed to reflect the ups and downs in gold. Given all the uncertainty around the world and concerns over inflation the rally in gold could have further to run. The breakout in the IAU past the $14.00 area looks like a bullish entry point. I would keep our positions small since the precious metals could start to see more volatility as this very crowded trade could start to get a little frothy.
I am suggesting bullish positions now but you could wait and buy dips in the $14.25-14.00 zone. We'll use a stop loss at $13.75. Our first upside target is $15.75.
