Sharechatters should be aware this may cause some temporary
instability for gold stocks, eg; Intec (INL).
Would you agree?

In recent days, April Gold has been in a fairly narrow trading range,
between 414.50 and 406.3. A close below 406, which we could see today, should
pressure the gold down to at least $397 an ounce, and possibly as low as $388
within a matter of days. This is a 50% Fibonacci retracement from contract
From those levels, I would look for an opportunity to initiate
an option strategy. A stradddle would be good here as if gold rallies again it
would quickly pay for the Downside Option.
A straddle is the buying of a Call and a Put @ the same strike price,
effectivly hedging your self.
