Gold Can Be Sweet

I know, I know, just two days ago I was spouting how you should Not Buy Gold in Yen or Any Other Any Currency Yet and now it is sweet? Well if we are allowed to price Gold in anything currency, then why not any commodity as well. So looking further into this it appears that Gold priced in Sugar just might be a good idea. The ratio chart of the SPDR Gold Trust Shares, $GLD to the iPath Dow Jones-UBS Sugar Subindex Total Return ETN, $SGG, or the price of Gold in Sugar, is showing strength. It is above the key support/resistance level of 2.30 in the rising trend since early 2011

and has held support on a backtest of the level from above. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is holding in bullish territory as the Bollinger bands are squeezing for the next move. As long as this holds over 2.30 you can own this ratio. Do so by buying 100 Shares of $GLD for every 230 share of $SGG sold short. Look to take profits when the ratio hits near the previous high at 3.0 and stop the trade on a ratio of 2.25. In this way you are risking $8.05 – $8.23 to make $32.78 – $42.76.
