Is gold finally breaking out??? Two higher closes over $1,357 in the April contract would confirm it. April futures are currently going for $1,365, putting our bullish call option positions “in-the-money.” March is typically a poor month for the yellow metal but 2014 hasn’t been a typical year. Could there be a Saint Patrick’s Day pot of gold over the rainbow? Are we there yet? The next few days will tell the tale. Gold has a history of breaking bullish hearts, so it wouldn’t surprise us if this “breakout” becomes a “fakeout.” However, something tells us this one may be for real. Two solid closes above $1,357 in the April contract mean gold could be on its way to our $1,450 upside objective in fairly short order.
