From Chris Kimble: Gold prices have chopped higher since bottoming in December 2015. The move has not been as exciting as precious metals bulls would like but its followed a trend of higher lows nonetheless.

During the same time frame, Gold has tested the $1360 – $1375 price level on multiple occasions – see resistance line at (1).  This action has created a compression pattern that is creating pressure to the upside. This pattern is known as an ascending triangle and would be very bullish for gold IF prices can breakout ABOVE current resistance at $1375.

If gold does break out to the upside, a measured move price objective of $1796 could be reached – see line at (2).

This setup requires patience as Gold is still trading under $1375.  Note that a move lower that breaks the uptrend line (around $1275) would negate this pattern.


If Gold would happen to break above resistance, it would send a bullish message to Gold bulls they haven’t seen in the past 5-years! What gold does at (1) will be important for Silver and Gold mining stocks!

If Gold, Silver, Copper, and mining stocks price action is important to you, we would be humbled if you were a Metalsmember or a member of our most popular product (which includes metals).

The SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD) fell $0.08 (-0.06%) in premarket trading Friday. Year-to-date, GLD has gained 1.74%, versus a -0.46% rise in the benchmark S&P 500 index during the same period.

GLD currently has an ETF Daily News SMART Grade of A (Strong Buy), and is ranked #1 of 35 ETFs in the Precious Metals ETFs category.
