Gold: What Are the Seasonal Trading Patterns Telling Us?

David Moadel, host of “Looking at the Markets with David Moadel,” welcomes Frank Holmes to the program for the first time. Frank begins the conversation by explaining how he got started in finance, and more specifically, the commodity and gold markets. He goes on to discuss the current gold market and what the yellow metal’s seasonal trading patterns are telling us about the possible future direction of the price.

Frank says that gold’s seasonal pattern is incredibly powerful, noting that it is predominately driven by the Love Trade, but also by the Fear Trade, which we are experiencing right now.
