from Gold Silver Worlds:
We have been watching gold for a possible triple bottom, a base for the next strong rally. Earlier this month gold bounced off an important support line, offering hope to gold bulls that the third bottom in the series would be successful. However, the price of gold has slipped badly in the last two weeks, and on Friday the triple bottom support line failed to hold.
The weekly chart shows the big picture. While the triple bottom looked tempting, the consolidation of the last year was a negative continuation pattern, meaning that it would most likely resolve downward as the decline from the 2011 top resumed. The declining tops marking the top of the formation was also a negative sign. Finally, the persistent discount* on shares of Central Gold Trust (GTU) displayed on the bottom panel showed that sentiment on gold never got out of the basement.
