Trading options, not GLD, is a great way to fight inflation. – StockNews

Inflation fears continue to mount in the US The Federal Reserve has raised interest rates to combat the ever-rising CPI (Consumer Price Index) which reached a recent all-time high of over 9% last June. This pushed consumer prices to their highest levels since late 1979.

Recent weakness in food and energy prices has led to a weakening of the CPI, which stood at 8.5% in the latest report in July. Better, but still no good news about inflation.

The difference between the yield on two-year government bonds and the yield on ten-year government bonds remained the opposite. A recession could be ahead regardless of future Fed policy.

Gold Prices Find Support

The gold price (GLD) again held strong support in the $157 area.

Shares reached oversold terms on a 9-day RSI basis before strengthening. MACD also oversold and then moved higher. Bollinger Percent B briefly turned negative, but has since regained positive ground. GLD is trading at a large discount from the 20-day moving average.

The four previous times this has happened marked significant short-term lows in GLD, as marked in aqua on the map. A return above the 20-day moving average seems the most likely outcome.

It will be interesting to see if the recent rally in GLD has meaningful legs or if it will pull back to retest support.

Investing in gold as an inflation hedge seems like a spurious exercise at best. The fact that gold peaked in March 2022, just before the Fed began raising interest rates seriously, allays much of the inflation-fighting concerns over gold ownership.

Instead of gold, consider using the power of POWR options to increase your overall returns.
