David Erfle: Strong Hands Snapping Up Gold, Price Drivers and Trends to Watch

Now trading around US$1,830 per ounce, gold has pulled back since pushing past US$1,950 on February 1.

For David Erfle, editor of Junior Miner Junky, the yellow metal's decline makes sense. "Basically it's consolidating a huge move," he explained at this year's Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention.

He sees fairly strong support for gold at the US$1,780 to US$1,800 level, and said US$1,850 and US$1,900 represent points of resistance. "If we get a weekly close above US$1,900 that would bring more bullish sentiment back into the market," Erfle said.
