    Trendline broke + resistance broke + bullish elliott wave count = I'm long

    Elliott wave count

    A better look at the resistance that broke

  4. Anemic volume. Not very convincing, certainly not as high probability as September '09 push. Doesn't mean it won't melt up.

    I agree that previous setup was beautiful, with a nice pop out of the triangle. I've outlined the reasons why I went long, so it's up to you decide if they're good enough.

    I agree and hope that gold will break out from here. I've been in my current long GLD position for a few months now and I've been upside down in the trade almost the entire time (entry $117).

    I don't normally hold losers that long, but gold has just been consolidating this entire time, even with US$ going up, so I haven't seen anything on the charts to make me think gold isn't still a good buy.
  7. Not yet.

  8. Have you considered selling calls against that long? You could have probably broken even from the garnered premium all that time.

    "hope" - four letter word my friend.

    Price looks a bit old on that chart, I believe GC is aroudn 1125 now.

    Gold is obviously an excellent buy for the long term, but the chart doesn't make any sense to me right now.

    However, I wonder isn't anyone bothered that gold is obviously so strongly correlated with oil?
