Gold opens the week at present above its Neutral Zone for today; the balance of the BEGOS Markets are within same, and volatility is mostly light. The 700th Edition of The Gold Update anticipates a new All-Time High (above 2089) is nigh, albeit that price being sufficiently stretched at present that more imminently a peek back into the 1900s first is warranted; by Market Values (in real-time), Gold shows as +54 points above its smooth valuation line; too by Market Trends, Gold’s “Baby Blues” have slipped below their +80% axis, the rule of thumb there being to expect lower levels. And by Market Ranges across the board for all the BEGOS components, “narrowing” is the watchword, notably so for both Oil and the Spoo, both at their tightest EDTRs in at least a year. The Econ Baro looks to April’s NY State Empire Index and NAHB Housing Index.
