Gold breaks 2013 trend-line, 2017 high

Yesterday was a big day for precious metals, with the help of a sharply declining US dollar. Gold broke through the 2013 trend-line we’ve been discussing lately, and even took out the 2017 high at 1357 in the process (albeit on a closing basis, marginally).

This opens up a path to the 2016 high at 1375, with resistance standing in the way at 1367 (came close overnight). Beyond the 2016 high is the 2014 high, which clocks in at 1392. From a tactical standpoint, despite gold having broke out, the current extension doesn’t offer the greatest risk/reward long.

A modest pullback not exceeding the recently broken 2013 trend-line (~1343) may present an opportunity for would-be longs. Prior to that, gold has a trend-line from the December low. A small consolidation-phase without seeing much of a retracement would give gold a chance to build up steam for another push higher. Until we see a sharp reversal in price action, back below the 2013 trend-line, shorts don’t appear appetizing at this time.

Silver runs through thick resistance via trend-line, price zone

Silver has been lagging behind gold, but made a major ‘catch-up’ move yesterday, rallying about 3% through a thicket of resistance in the vicinity of 17.25/40, along with crossing the 2016 trend-line which ran through the vicinity of price resistance.

Just ahead lies a trend-line crossing down from April over the September peak (today’s high, depending on how you draw it, touched the t-line). This will be the first line to hurdle before the next price level of price resistance clocks in at 18.21. Looking to support, the recently broke resistance in the 17.25-40 range turns into the first area to watch. A breakdown back below and the trend-line rising up from December would be cause for pause on a further advance.
