Gold Surges To Its Best Day In 13 Months
With gold now up an impressive 13.1% from its post-Bernanke lows 3 weeks ago (notably more than the +8.8% in US equities), it appears the physical demand is quietly catching up to the paper supply. As we noted here, shorts covered around 11% of their positions in the last week and we suspect today's surge is yet more covering as the massively over-crowded paper-short gold position starts to unwind. Of course, this surge is disappointing to many (including China we suspect) as the 'transitory' end of the price beatdown means we can buy less physical (and take immediate possession) now than at the June lows of $1180. With gold testing its 50DMA for the first time since February, we suspect the momo crowd will be quick to jump ship should we push on through.
