Elliott Wave Junctures editor Jeffrey Kennedy shares his charts to illustrate this technique, which he recently used to identify a critical turning point in Gold. The following lesson is adapted from his March 26 video. Get more lessons from Jeffrey in the free report, 6 Lessons to Help You Spot Trading Opportunities in Any Market.

Kennedy covers other examples to explain how slingshots, reverse divergence and positive/negative reversals highlight the same momentum signature:

In subsequent days, Gold prices fell to below $1550.
