Gold opened last week at $1,206.40 per ounce, and broke below the very important $1,200 support level by Wednesday. Gold hit a low of $1,197 that day on heavy selling and the short-term outlook was very bleak. Suddenly, the trading volume and price started moving higher and Gold closed at $1,208. Then, on Thursday and Friday, the Gold price never broke below the $1,200 level and was up $5 and $8 respectively.

Gold ended last week up $14.60 (1.2%) at $1,221 per ounce. But more importantly, Gold successfully completed an inter-day reversal of direction. This is a very bullish sign that the recent price downtrend is over and the price of Gold is now trying to establish an uptrend. I believe this week is key to the direction of Gold for the balance of the year. Gold needs to confirm the reversal by staying above the $1,210 level this week and hopefully moving higher. One of the key factors in sustaining the rally is the U.S. Dollar Index. The Dollar Index is currently trading in the 96.50 level, and any move above 97 would put pressure on the price of Gold.

Today: Gold saw some light selling this morning, reaching a low of $1,213 before finding strong buyers. A low U.S. Dollar Index (96) has helped Gold stay above the $1,220 level today.

Silver closed at $14.36 last Friday, up $0.26 per ounce (1.7%) for the week. Last week, Silver reached a low of $13.84 before bottoming out and turning higher with Gold. For the first time in quite a while, Silver actually showed more price support than Gold last week. Now, we need to see Silver stay above the key $14 support/resistance level. The Silver-to-Gold ratio has dropped to an attractive 85.02-to-1.

Today: After reaching a low of $14.22 this morning on Asian markets, Silver has traded in the $14.40 area most of the day.
