8-we believe the yellow metal could easily climb $20-30$ from the level which it's currently trading at but today’s low-range close suggests the bulls are near-term exhausted and need to pause. You would need to keep in mind that our current existing position in the yellow metal is long term trading position where we have the ability to move our stop loss higher where it is placed now due to low risk and enormous reward nature of the transaction.
