It’s The Eighty

August 14, 2008

We think the 80 week exponential moving average is valid to identify support for gold as 2004 identified that as a support pivot. After the recent pounding gold has taken and the high anxiety gold investors have been feeling as of late, we thought it important to have a clear cut line in the sand for those who are concerned about gold entering a bear market.

Now, if gold does turn around and take the 80 week EMA out to the downside, one would have to consider an appropriate course of action. But until that time, we aggressively buy support.
