What The Popular Gold ETF Chart Tells Us About Gold Prices (GLD, IAU)
David Banister: Gold had remained in a rough 1550-1640 range for several weeks now. Tonight, we look at the SPDR Gold ETF (NYSEARCA:GLD), which represents the Gold spot price movements. Over the past 5 months we can see in the chart below the clear downtrend lines.
Recently, in the past 6 weeks we have seen a series of 3 higher lows including today where a lower gap filled in and then Gold reversed upwards.
What Gold needs to do, in terms of this GLD ETF is clear the 158 hurdle on a closing basis to set up a stage for a new advance. I would expect in the intervening months to October for Gold to continuing meandering and correcting to as low as 1445-1455, my longstanding Gold worst case low targets I’ve had since last September.
Near term key levels are 150 on the downside and 158 on the upside. If we close below 150 on GLD ETF then we should be looking for my 1445-1455 areas to be hit this summer before a low. If we clear 158 on the GLD ETF, then the triple bottom at 1520 is likely confirmed and we can start tracking some upside for Gold.

David Banister – We believe that markets move largely based on important swings in sentiment, crowd behavioral patterns, Fibonacci Re-tracements, Cycles, and other ephemeral catalysts. The headlines explain what just happened in the market, but they do not predict the next moves up or down in the indices, sectors, or commodities. As an investor, you need to be armed with tools in advance of major moves that are accurate, and TMTF will assist you in being prepared as an investor for volatile markets both on the upside and downside. We have a wealth of technical analysis experience to take advantage of the crowd behavior in the markets.
