Buying Gold Call Options at $1100 May Be A Good Strategy
Sep, 09th 05:54
Gold prices posted quite limited intraday gains yesterday, with spot hovering around $ 1,122.70 a troy ounce by US close, as surging risk appetite sent investors away from the safe-haven asset.
The downside, however, was limited as commodities traded generally higher, following mining-related shares.
Additionally, investors prefer to remain away from the metal, as the US FED meeting looms, with the Central Bank suspected to make its first rate hike which will be the first since 2006.
On daily basis, the downward potential remains strong, as the price is back below its moving averages, whilst the technical indicators remain well below their mid-lines, with limited downward momentum.
In shorter term, the 4 hours chart presents a neutral stance, as the price hovers around its 20 SMA whilst the technical indicators lack directional strength around their mid-lines.
The main support continues to be the 1,109.20 region, and it will take a break below it to confirm additional declines, back towards the July low at 1,071.00. So based on overall analysis, buying gold call options at $1100 may be a good strategy.
