Gold Alternate Count a C Wave Triangle
Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT
A bearish triangle remains possible but presentation of an alternate count is appropriate given that gold is nearing the top of its range. The alternate would treat consolidation from 1640.80 as a B wave triangle. A break above 1640.80 would confirm that wave C is underway towards 1700 (Fibonacci extension is just below that level and the 2/10 low is just above 1700). “After breaking the triangle pattern, gold has dropped well into its former range. Other than calling this a range, there really is no reason to waste time trying to figure out where this market is headed next. In fact, one can make the argument that the triangle remains underway (latest top composing wave C), in which case this market will get even more frustrating to follow over the next few months.”
