Gold Screaming Bear Market Targetting $650- Yorba TV Show

Commodities / Gold & Silver May 29, 2008 - 10:01 AM GMT

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Commodities Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHere are the topics for todays television show on Thursday at 4:00 pm EDT.

The first topic is the making of a head and shoulders pattern.  Chart # 1 shows the price of gold for the past year.  Let me point out an obvious level of resistance on the way up last fall.  In early November, gold bounced up against resistance at 850 and fell back.  On the second attempt, it cut through resistance, but fell back to retest it in January 2008.  

The test was successful and gold rallied to new highs in March.  The uptrend broke and gold sold off, reaching 850 again in early May.    Since then, it has bounced but was 21 points shy of exceeding its prior high.  That is very important, since a failure to make a new high means that gold is now going down to retest support again at 850.  This is a textbook case of support and resistance in a very clear context.  Over 7 months, we have three direct hits from above or below on the support/resistance line at 850.

What happens next?  

A failure at the high means a retest of the low, so it is evident to most technicians that gold will retest support at 850 very quickly.  If 850 doesn't provide a net for the price of gold, then support is broken.  The rule of thumb is that, once support is broken from above, it becomes resistance from below.  This hasn't occurred yet, but the indicators strongly suggest that it may.  Once this occurs, the support/resistance line at 850 becomes what is called the neckline and we have a head and shoulders pattern.  The formula for calculating the target for a H&S pattern is that the distance from the head to the neckline equals the minimum distance from the neckline to the target.  That number comes to 667.  The next thing we do is look for support in that area and find it at 640-650, the June 2007 low. This gives us the potential ultimate target for this decline.

What level of confidence can we give this projection?  

Tom Bulkowski's Encyclopedia of Chart Patterns gives this a 63% accuracy rate.  However, you may also combine other analyses to increase your probability of accuracy. In this case, I have three other potential analyses that confirm the same outcome, giving this a much higher probability.

No.  Look at the SPX chart.  It appears to be a massive head and shoulders pattern that came back through after the violation.  As of Wednesday night, it was resting on the neckline again.  Once it plunges through, it further confirms the next target at about 1165 or even further below.


See you at 3:00 CST.
