High volatility in gold (GC) ?

Last week's removal of SNB's floor for EUR/CHF created high volatility in gold (GC).
In two days the ECB will announce or not a QE programme for the eurozone.

Will this create high volatility in gold again ?
A more general question: what creates high volatility in gold ?

I think "ESF" is your answer. Just google "Exchange stabilization fund gold manipulation".
My personal opinion is that you should understand how the USA sytem works then you can trade gold.

Gold

I have been doing rather well in gold the last week. Very favorable trading conditions with this increase in volatility as you mentioned.

Grains

I put the brakes on grain trading for the last few months, I typically just trade the grains in the summer months. I don't usually hold positions over night so i really just like to be in the market during its most volatile periods.

Uptrend since January 5

Gold is in an uptrend since January 5.

However, the volatility has only slightly increased after the SNB announcement.

I just started last year but put on hold until April (planting starts). However I kept positions overnight. Keep an eye however on Brazil soybeans and Argentina corn for now. It's a lot of bearish pressure. As per my several years experience just watching the grain market it was always a problem with weather or something else that created a good trend. All you should do just jump on it than go back and force (because of volatility). It was stunning 140% return last year for the novice trader, however my account was only $5K and I traded only one contract. I was scared not to over leverage it. Will check my luck this year. Sorry for off top.

As per gold I haven't traded it yet. My big concern that countries which are in troubles now will through gold in a market. Also we should remember that USA system is alive while the $ is alive. It means that ESF will create tons of paper gold futures to put them in a market to keep investors off the gold. John Paulson, the guy who made $15B on housing crash, lost 30% last year betting on gold. I probably too scared to trade gold.
