Gold Bullish Breakout Valid Above 1607
Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT
Focus remains on the long term (multiyear) trendline, which is at 1686 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). Currently at the 161.8% extension of the rally from the May low, this level may produce an interim top. Coming under 1607 would shift focus to 1580. Until then, I want no part of the short side.
Trend Strength (M,W,D) – 3, 2, 1
