Yesterday we saw the first real rally of any significance in gold since early November. Gold futures open interest also experienced its largest 1-day increase since September 6th (more than 11,000 contracts). After the beat down that gold has gotten since the election yesterday’s rally is simply a first step and there is a lot more work to be done to repair a badly damaged chart:
The first minor resistance comes in near $1170 with much more significant resistance in the $1190-$1200 area.
If $1124 does turn out to be the low of the recent correction it will be a bullish omen for the much bigger picture because it will be a higher low relative to the December 2015 low at $1045, and it will have occurred on the most depressed sentiment on gold in at least 20 years.
Turning to silver, gold’s little brother has formed a large bullish falling wedge pattern since October with bullish RSI divergences and a bull MACD cross about to take place:
A breakout above ~$16.60 would offer a measured move target of ~$19 (correlates to November high).
Zooming out to a one year chart of silver it’s easy to see the importance of the $15.70-$16.00 support zone:
Silver (Daily – 1 Year)
The lows in gold & silver which were made earlier this month now become important reference points, the longer it takes for them to be retested the more significant these lows become.
