Since yesterday's newsletter, gold has fallen through support at $900.
Penetration of the long-term rising trendline warns of a secondary correction. The metal is likely to find support at $850 in the short-term, but could go as low as $775 in the next downward leg.
The weekly chart shows that gold experienced a similar correction in mid-2006. And we may see a similar consolidation to establish a new base this time. The primary up-trend remains intact and would only be threatened if there is a fall below support at $775.
Let him buy one-fifth of his full line. If that does not show
him a profit he must not increase his holdings because he has
obviously begun wrong; he is wrong temporarily and there is no
profit in being wrong at any time.
