Now It’s Time to Wait for a Dip to Buy Gold (GLD)

I sent out a chart on August 10th with different set ups for buying Gold/(NYSE:GLD). We do use a tier system- this way we can scale in and scale out of potential trades. In last e-mail I sent out on August 10th was when Gold was on its highs. The GLD’s were extending into the $175 area. We did state in that note, that it’s not the time to chase, but you can sell into some excitement if you were in a tier 2 or 3 while maintaining a position

to stay with the longer term move.

We’ve now had a two day pull back since the Margin Requirements were raised. At this point I would look at the 10/20 day moving averages. Typically when gold/gld corrects you can buy it as it breaks the 10day moving average, but in front of the 20day. Either way if you sold $172-175- you have the luxury of buying $160-$16.

This is how you manage positions. Take some profits but stay with the trade.
