Gold's Rise: Head fake or is it the real deal?


 -- Published: Tuesday, 1 March 2016 | Print  | Disqus 

By Bob Kirtley

 

The downtrend that has dominated this sector for the last 3 years has been broken by golds sudden and almost vertical rise from its recent lows.

 

 

This rise in the price of gold can be attributed to any number of factors including but not limited to the following:

  • A technical reaction of an oversold position
  • The continuing demise of a number of the world’s major currencies
  • Supply and demand
  • Fear as the world is in turmoil
  • Geo-political uncertainty
  • China’s unquenchable thirst for gold
  • An opportunity to invest in an unloved, oversold sector of the market

The question that we all wrestle with is whether or not this is another head fake or is it the real deal?

 

As the chart shows we have had 4 similar breakouts in gold prices over the last 3 years. Each one of these has been greeted with great joy by the perma-gold bulls looking for some relief from the battering that this sector has endured.

 

This move may well be the real deal, however, gold is technically overbought which suggests that a near term correction is on the cards. The speed and severity of the retracement will give us a clue as to golds strength. If gold can hold above its previous high of around $1180.00/oz then that would be a positive indication of better things to come. However, should it fall much further then we could see yet another test of the previous lows.

 

Go Gently
