Spot Gold retreated to $1280/ounce. Penetration of the rising trendline warns of a correction to test primary support at $1250. A Trend Index peak below zero warns of strong selling pressure.
Fortunately for Australian gold stocks, the Aussie Dollar broke primary support at 75, warning of a decline to 69/70 US cents. The Trend Index peak below zero warns of strong selling pressure.
The weaker Aussie Dollar boosted local gold stocks, with the All Ordinaries Gold Index breaking through resistance at 5100. Follow-through above 5250 would confirm another advance but expect retracement to first test the new support level.
