Oct. 25 (Bloomberg) -- Trading Advantage Senior Market Analyst Alan Knuckman discusses his play for gold on Bloomberg Television's "Market Makers." (Source: Bloomberg)

It is time for the options insight.

This could be gold's time to shine.

The strategy for a gold etf.

A gold miner's etf.

Thanks for joining us.

It is not that you are overly bullish, but you are not necessarily bearish on gold.

It is a point of risk versus reward.

I think it is a good value.

I like all things gold.

I like gold.

I like goldman sachs.

The miners have gotten hit more than gold itself.

If we get above this and get above that 1430 level, gold could make a move to 1600. i think there is a better payoff in ddx -- gdx.

The reason i'm buying march is so i have enough time to be right.

It gives me plenty of time.

Goldman sachs made their call.

We will see.

The fact that it is not going lower to me is a bigger sign then anything else with all of the potential pressures it can have.
