Turning Bullish On Gold Again

See Full Report
*Our last bullish piece on gold was August 16th. Since then, we've been bearish.

*We're turning bulls again.

*Many factors give gold a window to do well. We're not yet sold on gold longer term though.

Review Of Our Calls
On August 25th, we went from being bullish to bearish:
"The Fed increased their hawkish tone over the last two weeks. That likely means they are aligned to hike rates. The initial reaction to a hike in rates would be to sell inflationary assets like gold."
Previous to that call, we had been bullish.
Since that call, we had been bearish initially based on the Fed turning more hawkish. Gold had a huge multi-year run, thanks to record easing from the Fed. That change in tone was expected to cap gold.
In December, our Premium Members (Pay Wall) saw us turn bullish for the first time fundamentally, despite our technicals still pointing bearish.
"We are staying bearish for now because of our model but the fundamentals could swing short term positive if there is a slowdown in the economy."
While some economic numbers had been turning up, our main indicator, US jobs, slowed in December. A slowdown, while most were looking for a pickup, could help gold.
Now we see fundamentals and technicals pointing up.
