...so why not gold
Gold -- A number of subscribers want to know why I would buy GLD (gold) here. The reason I would buy gold here is because the P&F chart looks favorable. Of course, any chart can change, but this chart looks good. In fact, the chart has the look of a massive base of accumulation.
Only three things can happen to GLD as far as the P&F chart is concerned.
GLD is trading this morning at 67.02, which, for our purposes, means that GLD is at the 67 box. My take (guess) is that this is such an overall impressive formation that I believe the resolution to this pattern will be GLD rallying to 69. If this occurs, it would be a very impressive move, in which case I'd guess the GLD would continue higher and in due time better its recent high at 72.
The last P&F signal for GLD was a bullish signal at the 65 box -- give us an upside P&F "count" to 85. That would correspond to 850 on gold -- but why not, platinum hit an all-time high today, nickel is at the high as is aluminum All the base metals are strong -- so why not gold.
