- IAU December $12.00 Put Trade - During the week, IAU dropped from a close of $12.13 last Friday to a close of $11.93 this Friday. The put price stayed the same at $0.20. There was positive news on the economic, employment, and manufacturing numbers that were instrumental in this week's drop. The likelihood of the drop continuing is high as the Federal Reserve meets on the 17th and 18th of December to discuss the possibility of tapering the $85 billion monthly QE. Gold is nearing the yearly low. There has not been a large volume day to indicate that a bottom has been reached. Technicals and fundamentals are suggesting a continuation of the down trend. There is still quite a bit of interest in the trade as the time value is higher than expected. Positives for gold include buying pressure from China. KDK Fund will continue with the trade as it is. The goal is still $1.00 for the put. The trade will end by December 20. The initial post of this trade can be found here.
