The simple answer is yes. The key question is… are we going to test $1000 or back below $900? If you look at the daily charts Gold has been inching slowly upwards, the first resistance in $965, then a successful close above $980-$983, will confirm the upside new assault on $1000. I am still sticking to my prediction of Gold at $1250 by the end of the year.

The charts are almost indentical to 2007 before the big breakout, check it out for yourself. A major factor which few are talking about is any breakout above $1000 will cause a massive short squeeze or an even more massive loss for the Big 3 (banks) who are heavily short. Posistions starting as low as $750 -$800. Due to this there exists an even larger potential for Gold to actually go as high as $1500 by year end.

Silver on the other side is going to go to $25 by year end and an even bigger short squeeze potential exists in that market. By the way look for Crude oil to be at or above $100 barrel. The dollar is doomed either way and inflation will have accelerated to the 12%-15% range at about the same time.

I’ll update the stock markets tomorrow and even though I think we still a tiny bit of room to the upside as we finish “the head” of the head and shoulders pattern that has been forming. Keep your stop loss orders tight and as always, Good Investing! – jschulmansr

Why Gold ETFs Are All About Timing --- Seeking Alpha

By: Tom Lydon of ETF Trends

Investor sentiments change with the seasons and summer proved to be

a lackluster season for gold. Nevertheless, a new season may provide

gold and related ETFs with the opportunity to shine.

A recent dip in gold prices renewed fund manager interest in gold,

citing the pullback as a buying opportunity, remarks Dan Well for

Gold abated from its recent high of $992.10 an ounce on June 3, but

many investors still believe inflation will kick in sooner or later.

Some portfolio managers believe gold may even touch $1,300 as soon

as spring. Gold is a popular hedge in inflationary times.
In the short term, seasonal changes may be a significant factor in

gold’s decline. Historically, gold prices tend to dip during summer

because the period lacks big gift-giving holidays. But purchases of

gold-related products resume in the fall when the Indian wedding

season, Ramadan, Christmas, and the Chinese New Year kick in.
Many people don’t know how many ounces a bar of gold actually

contains, comments Jim Wang for Bargaineering. In Wang’s search for

the answer, he discovered that there’s really no standard when

referring to “gold bars.” There is, however, the “400 ounce London

Good Delivery.” At $946 an ounce, the price as of Aug. 11, one

hefty stick of gold comes to $378,704. Yowza.
