Gold technical posturing taking up the form of a bull-flag
Gold worth continues its battle beneath long-term resistance, and this battle could proceed for a short time longer earlier than pushing on via to new bull-cycle highs. General, although, it is a good factor as congestion phases can deliver the ability wanted to maintain a run, particularly when there’s resistance as large as what gold is dealing with from the 2011/12 interval.
Value is presently sitting up towards an higher parallel working down off the September excessive. The parallels have gotten a part of a growing bull-flag, and whereas this can be intermediate-term bullish, the downward sloping nature of those formations continues to be near-term bearish. Decrease-lows and lower-highs can proceed for an prolonged time period earlier than the sequence is damaged.
Ideally, one other dip decrease develops off the higher parallel, and sooner or later, whether or not it occurs right here within the days forward or simply down the street, a higher-low is carved out contained in the bull-flag to point rising power. To set off the sample a breakout above the top-side parallel might want to take form, and in the end gold must rise via the resistance zone extending as much as 1575 earlier than a a lot bigger rally can start.

Silver outlook not as robust, may publish one other lower-low
Silver is working a bit weaker than gold, not completely sudden because the rally into the September excessive was parabolic and in want of a correction. There’s trend-line resistance working down off final month’s excessive that would preserve stress on silver a lot in the identical means as gold.
Nevertheless it wouldn’t take a lot to knock silver again to a brand new corrective low. For my part, the weaker posturing makes silver the higher brief for now, however like gold ought to worth maintain above the Oct 1 low at 16.89, it may give indication of accelerating power. The highest-side trend-line will nonetheless must be taken out, although, earlier than longs can acquire any actual traction.
