Gold and Silver – More Range Bound Activity

Technical observations of

Posted Jun 29, 2011

It is now eight weeks since the precious metals topped and gold is producing its third Springboard alert (oversold in a rising trend). The May 17th and June 13th alerts produced rallies of $70 and $43. Additionally, both gold and silver have simultaneous RSI(14) readings below 40, an occurrence we like to see once prices have been in a consolidation of five weeks or more following an RSI reading of 85 in the Silver/Gold ratio. Once this oversold reading is behind us the metals should be capable of more sustained rallies. The first day in silver with a higher high can be used to identify the upside reversal.

Gold is close to its 50 & 55 day Bollinger Band supports ($1470 & $1490) and silver is approaching its 7% moving average band (currently $31.60).

These are the type of oversold and support characteristics seen at important lows following the tops in 2008, 2006, 2004, 1995 and 1987.

Although the metals have made new lows for the month of June, the majority of the mining stocks are holding above the June 17th bottoms. This is inverse to the price action seen going into the April highs when there were bearish divergences in the miners.

Seasonally, prices should be expected to base out in late June through July.

The next important highs in silver should test the upper 7% moving average band this summer.
