GOLD last dive

Hi Traders,

Gold (now at 1114) topped at 1128.06 within the target area at 1126-1133 (see weekly and daily chart).

Unless an "extension" occurs, the yellow metal should climb up to 1122-24 but only to start the very last downtrend to the area at 1006-990 (see monthly chart).

At that low, Gold is supposed to "hit the low & reverse up". In so doing, the downtrend started on September 06, 2011 at 1920.70 will be filed to history.


Some Elliott Wave analysts might claim that "the expected final target" should sit in the area 861-846

I have no objection to that, as it's 
  • right between the 61.8% to the 66% retracement, as it often happens.
  • right in the middle of "wave 4" (see the monthly chart).
  • wave 4 (in the major uptrend) belongs to a minor grade (as required by the theory), if compared of the bigger grade of the a-b-c-d-e retracement that it's ending right now.
However, at present, the area at 1006-990 is my favourite target. We'll see.


Just a curiosity: level $1085.84 marks the 50% retracement of the major uptrend started in 1999 and ended in 2011.


Short Term Supports

- 1098
- 1089
- 1082
- 1071
- 1034


likely: 1034
possible: 1006-990
maybe: 861-846


A confirmation that 1128.06 is the top of wave 4 comes from the daily and 4-hour charts. Here, wave 4 is made of an a-b-c, which is the way it should be.

In turn, wave c is sub-divided in 5 waves, which is again the way it should be

Hence, unless we see a 3 wave  extension up, all ducks seem to be in a raw to start wave 5 on the wave down.
