This Past Week In Gold

July 13, 2013

The decline in gold prices this year has been classically bearish. Each sharp drop is followed by a consolidation before another sharp drop, thus trapping buyers who have been trying to pick a bottom. This pattern has to change before one can become a confident buyer.

 

 

GLD – on sell signal.

 

SLV – new buy signal.

GDX – on sell signal.

 

XGD.TO – on sell signal.
