Action to take: This looks like a reasonable play on how oversold gold has gotten in recent sessions. Traders may want to target an options trade for a bounce higher from here.
The May 2021 $20 calls, last trading for about $1.05, look like an inexpensive way to play a move higher in gold. Given that shares have bounced into the mid-$20 range over the past few months, the trade has a high chance of moving in-the-money before expiration.
Traders could nab triple-digits with this trade if the timing and speed of a bounce plays out perfectly. Traders should buy multiple contracts and look to scale out once the position hits mid-double-digit profits.
