Gold retreats from three-week high on stronger dollar

By Eileen Soreng

(Reuters) – Gold fell back from a three-week high on Monday as the dollar firmed, although hopes for a new U.S. coronavirus aid package checked the precious metal’s losses.

Spot gold slipped 0.1% to $1,928.06 per ounce by 0329 GMT, after hitting its highest level since Sept. 21 at $1,932.96 earlier in the session. U.S. gold futures were up 0.4% at $1,934.10.

“The dollar index has rebounded slightly, weighing on the precious metal,” said Margaret Yang, a strategist with DailyFx, which covers currency, commodity and index trading.

But, “the technical trend has turned bullish in the near term and very soon it may test the key resistance level of $1,942,” she added.

The dollar index was up 0.1% against rivals, after negotiation on the U.S. stimulus package ran into resistance and as the yuan dropped after China’s central bank took a measure seen as aimed at curbing

Gold Stocks Are Cheap, But Not For Long

It’s not too late for you to buy gold and gold stocks on the cheap.

If you haven’t already, you may want to seriously consider it.

That move might set you up for a run over the next few years that could turn into your single best investment… ever.

You see, gold stocks are churning out some serious profits that are likely to just keep getting better.

It’s true that, back in August, gold set a new all-time high at $2,067 on huge demand. It has since pulled back, but still managed to set another record: its eighth consecutive quarterly gain.

Despite all the fundamental and technical support that will push gold higher, I think we could still see some more near-term weakness/consolidation before the metal finally returns to rally mode.

And that buys you a little more time to determine your allocation.

Gold Strong, But Dollar Could Weigh Near

Forget gold and Bitcoin. I’d follow Warren Buffett and buy cheap shares to get rich

The idea of buying cheap shares may seem less appealing after the stock market crash. It highlighted the volatility that can be present in the stock market over short time periods. It also showed that paper losses that can be incurred by any investor.

However, over the long run, purchasing undervalued companies could be a profitable move. It’s a strategy that’s been used to great effect by Warren Buffett. The billionaire investor has used market downturns to his advantage over many years.

As such, avoiding popular assets such as Bitcoin and gold to buy bargain stocks may be a sound move, despite heightened short-term risks.

The appeal of cheap shares

Cheap shares can sometimes be priced at low levels because they offer disappointing investment outlooks. For example, they may have high debt levels or a weak strategy that’s in need of major change.

However, in some cases, undervalued stocks can
