Gold 4-hour chart as of Apr. 22, 2020 at 7:35am EST…
The price action is positive at $1,700 but not quite out of the woods. A double top (Mar. 14-15: $1,747 & $1,739 high) Big-M pattern set the stage for a needed breather and consolidation after a spectacular recovery out of the Bear Trap. Price is making progress this morning with a peek out of the Half Staff Flag‘s topside trendline and remains above the 50 Exponential Moving Average (EMA). There is a confluence of lateral resistance that must be dealt with around the $1,700 area before moving onward. The gold chart remains bullish so stay on your toes.
- UPDATE Apr. 23-24… Gold spot printed a $1,739 high, closed at $1,727 for the week.
- UPDATE Apr. 29, 6:30pm EST…
- UPDATE May 1, 7:30am EST… near-term potential for the Inverse H&S continuation pattern on the gold spot charted on Apr. 29, cancelled itself out over night, but could be morphing into a Big-W. Stay tuned as gold is bullish.
We are approaching the end of spring seasonality.
