Since plunging below its 200-day moving average last week, gold has been trying to rally back and make up some of its lost ground. Today, the commodity rallied by about 1.3% and back over $1,600 per ounce. While gold-bugs were happy to see the rebound, we would note that today's 1.3% rally was considerably lower than the gain we saw in equities and many of the other widely followed commodities. Also, gold closed within $1 of its 200-day moving average, and all too often it seems as though when we see rebounds that stall out just short of a major moving average, the stock or commodity quickly resumes its downward bias.
