Gold’s 7 Point Broadening Top

Commodities / Gold and Silver 2015 Aug 30, 2015 - 07:25 PM GMT

By: Austin_Galt

Commodities Gold looks to have made a short term high and now looks headed back down. Let’s revise the daily and monthly charts.


GOLD DAILY CHART



We can see the 7 point broadening top formation which we have been tracking for most of the year remains in play. The point 6 low looks in place or will be shortly and then the final parabolic rally into a point 7 high should occur. The fact that the point 6 low has made new yearly lows leads me to believe the point 7 high will be much higher than previously anticipated.

The recent low at $1072 did set up a bullish divergence using a longer time frame. One last low now would likely set up a triple bullish divergence which generally leads to a significant price rise.

The MACD indicator now looks to generally be trending up although it currently has a bearish bias indicating lower prices are likely over the near term.

The PSAR indicator shows price has just busted the dots on the downside so a bearish bias is now in force.

The Bollinger Bands show price is back at the middle band which looks to be providing some support. I expect this to be temporary only as price puts in a higher low back down around the lower band.

The first correction in a new bull trend often makes a deep retracement and I am favouring price to put in the first higher low down around the 76.4% level at $1095 and perhaps a touch lower although probably not as low as the 88.6% level at $1083.

It is also not out of the question for one final low to be seen. This scenario is given credence by the fact that the recent rally did not break any previous swing high levels.

We will need to see how price behaves down below $1100 to gives us a better idea of which scenario is occurring.

Once that low is in place I expect the belated bear rally to finally kick off.

GOLD MONTHLY CHART



We can see the recent low set up a “three strikes and you’re out” low formation.

The recent low set up a bullish divergence on the RSI.

The MACD indicator shows a triple bullish divergence and now a bullish bias again.

The Momentum indicator shows the downtrend began losing momentum at the first strike low.

The Bollinger Bands show the recent low at support from the lower band. If one final low is still to be seen then it would likely trade well below the lower band before reversing straight back up.

If the low is in place and a higher low plays out then the low in August at $1080 should hold although price may correct to the August open price which stands at $1095. Breaking the August low would surely mean price is headed to one final low.

If price does trade to new lows in September then I would expect it to be a spike low before sharp reversal back up that shows a bullish outside reversal candle with a big wick on the downside for the month of September. This remains a clear possibility and I have drawn Voodoo style how the September candle should look if price does trade to one final low.

Looking at this chart, price has virtually done bugger all since the first strike low in June 2013. These periods are very frustrating and can be difficult to trade as the overall downtrend inches down.

However, I expect this “boring” period is now at an end and some exciting action is finally about to be seen in the form of a spectacular B wave bear rally. Wave B rallies are often very big and get the crowd thinking the bull trend is off and running again.

I have added Fibonacci retracement levels of the move down from all time high to recent low. It will be interesting to watch how price trades around each level. Once potential level to end the bear rally is the 61.8% level which stands at $1596. All I expect is the rally to be a big one and how price behaves will give us better idea of where the final rally high will ultimately occur.

The long term view, outlined in previous analysis, remains unchanged which calls for a substantial rally before the final move down below $600 in the years to come. This would be the wave C low.
