Here are some updates to the gold charts we've been looking at over the past few months. I will not recapitulate all the salient points mentioned in the original posts, but I will provide links.
Our first chart is gold's 144-day moving average (blue line, dotted) and the regression line thereof (brown). Keep in mind that in exactly 10 trading days (Aug 1), the relatively low prices of the January 2011 correction (yellow arrow) will start dropping out of the 144-day MA. Of course, as smaller values drop out, the moving average will have a lot of upwards thrust, especially if gold continues its strong ascent over the next two weeks. That's why it's good news for gold bulls that the 144-day MA is still below the brown line. In 2 weeks, the 144-day MA should be around $1465-$1470, which isn't really much above the brown line, so we wouldn't need a big pullback to take it back there. But I'd still watch out for a pullback anyway at that point, since big corrections have often come around 144 days apart. So, we may, sometime in August, go all the way back down to the 144-day MA, say to $1500, which we clearly didn't do during the latest correction (missing it by ~2%). But, I'd say that although it felt mild, we did indeed experience a bona fide correction that ended July 4, judging by the fact that we went below the 40 day exponential moving average (see here) and also judging by all the other times the RSI got below 40 (see yellow horizontal line on below chart).
Next is my most recent weekly gold chart. We're right at $1590, but unfortunately it looks like we didn't quite make it over the thin blue line, such that it wouldn't be unprecedented to still test the lower black line again. (The point being, if gold finishes a week above the thin blue line, and doesn't continue all the way to the upper black line, then that would be a first since 2009). Let's see if we can make it over the line next week. Btw, if we hit the upper black line in the next month, that would mean $1650-$1750 gold.
Now gold in euros from a few weeks ago. The yellow arrow points to where the bottom of the blue trend channel meets the red/green horizontal line; I suspected that would be strong support, and it was. Gold in euros looks to be on its way to the top of the blue trend channel now, which would be something to behold. But it probably needs to take a breather.
Same with gold in AUD. I had posted two charts, one 3 year and one 6 year. In both, the lower trend lines held beautifully as support, and it looks like we're headed to the dotted lines on both charts, again after a short-term breather.
Finally, the silver weekly (see here and here). The last time we checked in, we were right at the 34-week moving average (pink dotted line) ... and it was not to be broken. We're now firmly back in the blue trend channel, and the 34-week moving average has entered it. That's good news for silver bulls.
