Gold generated a new IT Trend Model (ITTM) BUY signal as the 20EMA crossed up through the 50EMA. In the last year there have been six ITTM signal changes, and price has been running flat for six months, a configuration that facilitates even more whipsaw. There is, however, more to the picture than is visible on the daily chart.
On Friday I wrote: For several months gold has been in a trading range. Considering that the dollar (UUP above) has been falling during that time, we can conclude that there is an intrinsic weakness in gold that offsets some of the advantage it should gain from a weak dollar. Gold is heading to the top of its current trading range, but there is significant resistance being encountered right now that is not visible on the daily chart. (See the weekly chart below.) It would be most encouraging if price can reach the top of that range. Sentiment is still negative.
