How low can the gold price drop? Fed has ‘no excuse’ to not taper after blowout jobs report



Gold dropped more than 2% on Friday but should key support levels be broken on Sunday night, the price can fall even more, said Bill Baruch, president of Blue Line Futures.

“People would say $1,600 [an ounce] if we really start breaking down,” Baruch told David Lin, anchor for Kitco News. “We’ve still got lows in the year…$1,670 area, so there are areas where the market has held before. What we’re seeing now is sort of the potential breach of the low from June [of $1,750].”

On monetary policy, Baruch said that he wouldn’t be surprised to see the Federal Reserve signal tapering measures by their September meeting, especially if the jobs market continues to improve.
