I wrote Friday after the close:
“I thought we finished the week on a somewhat bearish note….
The market tried to penetrate higher the last 3 sessions and failed each time.
Also I got a sell signal on the weekly chart which I am attaching below for your review.
I think what type of price action we will see ( if ) when we trade at 1336- 1339 area, may give us further clues about this market. “
Well we tested this area today and did not get much of a bounce and actually closed right at 1336.
To me this shift the medium – longer term stance into bearish but as I said in the past, each day is different and one can not tell what the next day will bring…..
On a different note ( market) , weekly chart of the gold market for your review below with some key areas to watch.
