The set-up: Gold had a really strong day yesterday, but it’s an FOMC meeting day today. Any time the Fed releases meeting minutes, gold and the miners go up. That’s what a lot of people will be expecting again.

This time is different because the Fed is raising rates today, and I believe very strongly that as soon as the decision is announced at 2 p.m., gold is going to reverse hard, and everything tied to gold is going with it, Whether the Fed raises a quarter or a half point, gold will be destroyed because the commentary for the rest of the year will be extremely hawkish; that’s bad news for gold, from the physical shares to the miners and everything in between.   Anybody long in a trade for more than five seconds will be on the wrong side of things late this afternoon and tomorrow.

What I’m doing: I’ll be looking to get into DUST after the decision if I buy get in below $28.50. I’ll expect it to be over 30 by Monday, Tuesday at the latest.

Looks like Jeff Bishop sees otherwise…let the games begin! Here’s his plan!
