Looks like a setup for a cool uptrend. It would make sense since gold has been dropping. Eventually people are gonna buy the dips.
Gold has been in a holding pattern for 18 months now. It's setting up for a big move one way or the other, IMO. I'm guessing it heads north, as central banks have signaled they are printing to solve the world's debt crisis.
Probably going north, since thats what most of the trends are-UP;
not a prediction 10 year, 1 year candlecharts are uptrending also.
LOL!..nice setup my boloxinger bands..weekly timeframe...why don`t search thru the yearly,to find a setup for you?
price the straddle relative to what you consider to be the magnitude of the break out... i think asym triangles are very good indicators of impending breakouts.. thats from reading and experience..
