Gann For The Modern Trader Special Update: Gold (GLD)

Hi folks,

One regular request I get from my subscribers is “Do you plan on expanding markets beyond the E-mini S&P 500”? The answer is YES. It needs to be done thoughtfully and carefully for me to create the highest value analysis. Patience will be rewarded!

Meanwhile, I am publishing special updates like these to my subscribers when I see interesting, actionable price data, The “we’re at a key level” or “timing is coming in” type factors are what make it special, and a bit different from the Chart Of the Week that I used to distribute back in 2016.

The GLD chart is calling out to me today for a few reasons. The last time I wrote about it was in my final Chart Of the Week that I published on December 2, 2016. I’ve temporarily posted that report in the archives of the Members Only section, which anyone can access by subscribing to a FREE 30-day no obligation trial to my work:

GLD 6.1.17 weekly 1029 am

Chart: SPDR Gold Trust (TradeStation: GLD / June 1, 2017 / 10:29 AM Eastern Time (U.S. New York) / DAILY CHART SHOWN

GLD looks “toppy” to me for these reasons:

  • TIMING based on observations back to last August show the start of every other month (essentially 60 days) capturing trend accelerations or reversals in the short-term.
  • PRICE is backing off from a resistance trendline (lower of two black lines). This trendline is the parallel projection of a trendline I originally drew on a weekly chart joining 131.15 and 130.55.
  • PRICE is also backing off after yesterday’s test of the 121.28 old low, which is also the bottom of a price spike on the weekly chart.
  • Lastly, PRICE formed a shooting star candle yesterday
  • 14-DAY RSI posted a minor (day to day) bearish divergence WITHIN the bear market resistance zone. The last time that this zone ended up capping price action (yellow vertical line), a substantial downside move followed.

Outlook: If the support at Tuesday’s 119.95 low is breached and the gap up from last Friday’s 119.69 high is closed, then I’d watch for declines toward 117.14 initially. This outlook would be negated (in the short-term) if instead there’s a close back above yesterday’s 121.23 high and 121.28.

Euro FX

E6M7-11

The Euro generated its highest closing price in over 7 months.  The current chart pattern is incredibly bullish.  A weekly close above 1.1282 could push the Euro to 1.1408.  Without question, breakaway gaps are my favorite chart patterns.  They tend to be very reliable & usually quite profitable.  www.ReiterInvest.com

Canadian Dollar

C6M7-3

The Canadian Dollar has been drifting lower for the past 5 years.  After a brief rally in 2016, the bear market has returned.  The next support level is 7251.  A weekly close below 7251 opens the door to 6809.  The Canadian economy is struggling with fairly weak demand for natural resources along with a housing bubble.  This is a recipe for lower prices.  This bear market could easily continue for the next few years.  www.ReiterInvest.com   

Copper

HGN7-8

Is the global economy on the verge of a recession?  I believe the answer can be found in the price of copper.  This market has been stuck in a trading range for over 6 months.  Recently, copper has been drifting lower.  If HGN7 generates a weekly close below 246.20, we could be in the early stages of a global economic slowdown.  I am a seller of HGN7 @ 246.20.  www.ReiterInvest.com
