Gold 1603 Now the Pivot
300 Minute Bars
Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT
Focus remains on the long term (multiyear) trendline, which is at 1681 this week (increases about $5 a week). A traditional measuring technique reveals a longer term objective of 1692.05 (adding width of consolidation to breakout level). Short term momentum considerations (divergence) and the latest rally possibly being from a triangle warn of a drop into support from current levels. Coming under 1603 would suggest additional weakness. Until then, respect the upside.
