Gold Weekly Snapshot, Feb 5, 2024

In our new Gold Weekly Snapshot:

Gold shrugged off J.Powell hawkishness (March rate-cut off the table), much better than expected US job numbers, to finish the week higher. Below are the key highlights of our latest gold weekly snapshot:

  • Comex Gold ended the week at a 1-month high, up 1.8% at $2,053.7 per ounce, despite higher dollar and yields. Middle East and regional banks tensions put a floor on the metal.


  • Week to-Week Open Interest decreased by 33,155 or 7.3% to 419,859 lots (42m ounces), reaching a five-year low.


  • COT report covering the week to Feb 2 shows speculators (funds) trimmed their bullish bets for a fourth consecutive week by 5,009 lots ($1.03B in noTonal) to 56,024 contracts.


  • $2,100 is our current max upside target (highest gamma level) for the Apr’24 contract. As long as gold holds above $2,000, we remain positive.


  • Bets for out of the money (OTM) options remain decent, judging by the skew. Implied volatility has been increasing for OTM call options, meaning higher demand for calls (page 3 of the report).”
