Gold: Watch This Wedge

With technical indicators such as the MACD, STO and RSI fairly neutral, gold is at a crossroads. The chart below shows how gold prices are in a large wedge formation, going back a good six months.

Gold: Watch This Wedge

This wedge formation is what we will be watching very closely over the next few trading sessions for signs of a breakout. As of yet we are not totally sure which way gold will go. Our gut says up and out, but there is a possibility that we could see a sharp drop down before gold embarks on a massive rally over the next few months.

If gold breaks up and out of this wedge formation, it will certainly be a very bullish sign, however the real hurdle lies just above $1000. Sure, a break up and out will produce a fifty dollar rally and maybe a 20% gain in gold stocks which is all well and good, but the for the real substantial gains to be made gold prices need to make a new all time high. When this happens we think that gold prices will swiftly move to $1200, en route to $1500 and then $2000.

This is the mega move we are trying to get best positioned for, as this is where fortunes will be made. We see this move happening within the next two months and will possibly be coupled with the end of this bear market rally in the broader equity markets.

So its a good idea to have a core long position on gold, and look to add to this on dips and when possible trading opportunities arise.

The article says that a rise in the gold price "will possibly be coupled with the end of this bear market rally in the broader equity market."

Question: Wouldn't gold and gold stocks decrease in price with an equity sell off, like last fall, at least initially?

This may help put US Fed statements in a more correct light.

"The Fact that our economical models at The Fed, the best in the world, have been wrong for fourteen straight quarters, does not mean they will not be right in the fifteenth quarter."-- Alan Greenspan
