The futures market on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange allows you to trade gold at a 15-1 rate, and such positions “come into serious trouble with the kind of decline experienced on Friday,” Brandt said.
At the time of this writing, the price of the precious metal has recovered to about $1,740. The next resistance level is $1,750, said Tony Sycamore, an analyst at trading company City Index.
