Gold's Selloff Looks Perfectly Healthy And Normal

January 30, 2015

If you felt the sting of yesterday’s selloff, take encouragement from the fact that it looks merely corrective on the daily chart. That’s because the recent high at 1307.80 managed to exceed a prior ‘external’ peak recorded back in August before bulls took a breather. Healthy rallies tend to do this with each new thrust, creating fresh bullish impulse legs, while weak ones usually chicken out an inch shy of an earlier peak. The implication in this case is that when the presumptive correction ends, the next rally cycle could be good for as much as a $140 gain.  Expect more weakness in the meantime, however — for at least the next 2-3 days, that is — because yesterday’s low decisively exceeded a 1261.60 Hidden Pivot support by $10.
