[Gold] spot prices declined to $1122.98 yesterday and the Daily Sentiment Index (trade-futures.com) dropped to just 4% gold bulls. Equally important is the persistence of the pessimism. A 21-day average of the DSI is now at just 9.76%, which is the lowest in the history of the data set.
Traders are more bearish on a longer-term basis now than they were in July 1999, when gold was at $252.15, nearly $900 lower! This degree of pessimism usually attends the end of a decline and the start of a rally. It's tough to lean against a crowd, which is almost unanimously bearish gold. But that's exactly what our analysis suggests is proper at the current juncture. -- Dec. 16 Short Term Update
