Gold Short Trade for New Year Profit

Gold Short Trade for New Year Profit

With stock markets around the world on a somewhat new year surge, from a correlation point of view we thought we’d short Gold, added to this the recent weakness in the US Dollar supported a growth in the price of gold, however a new year strengthening of the dollar after a discussion of tax cuts and further interest rate hikes meant the surge in gold prices was a temporary phase.

The markets will also be waiting for Friday’s Non- Farm Payroll results which could go either way for the Dollar and could prove turbulent for gold

We went with a quick trade for a healthy £317.00 profit, a good result as we wanted to be in and out before further change in the market news.
