Since Friday there is a not a big but noticeable drop in the price of the price of gold. It went down to $1334 from the $1339 level. The fundamentals underpinning the move were associated with the rise in US rates on Friday with stocks closing at all-time highs. This is the reason why investors have chosen to sell gold and go back to the USD.

The most suitable target price for today is $1340. The level is appropriate not only because it’s close to the price from which gold started losing its value, but because last week the price of the precious metal pivoted around it a couple of times.

A lot of interest is concentrated at this level and selling will bring prices lower than the target. We will be buying daily puts on the price of $1340 for the 20:00 GMT expiration.
