Pro: Why Gold Is Rising

Gold has bounced $160 higher since everyone and their mother sold out of their gold position. Now undergoing what's described as a "back-and-fill" movement.

So what's "back-'n-fill"? It's a technical term describing the price retracement from a dramatic move—such as the one we are seeing since gold fell from $1,523.

Typically, in fierce swings like that, some prices never get traded, as the huge move easily skipped them over. A "back-'n-fill" price movement then goes back to those skipped prices and fills in the chart.

So, are we going to see this "back-'n-fill" complete its course all the way back up to $1,523? I think so. When that happens, the bulls and bears can face off again to decide who's in charge of gold.

But until then, you might as well buy!
