Gold Is Breaking Out Of A Six-Year Bearish Range (GLD)

From Chris Kimble: Below looks at the ratio of Gold compared to the US Dollar over the past 20-years. The ratio reflects that some long-term trends have taken place and the ratio is making an attempt to do something it hasn’t been able to accomplish in 6 years.

The ratio broke above 6-year falling channel back in 2001 at (1) and then it proceeded to rally for the next 10 years.

For the past 6 years, the ratio has continued to create a series of lower highs and lower lows inside of falling channel (2).

Currently the ratio is attempting to do something that it has not done in 6-years, which is a breakout above falling channel (2) at (3).
