The Gold Bugs Index followed through above 225 after breaking its descending trendline, suggesting that a bottom is forming. Bullish divergence on 13-week Twiggs Momentum strengthens the signal. Reversal below 210 is unlikely, but would re-test primary support at 190.

Gold Bugs Index

Spot gold similarly followed-through above 1280, suggesting a bottom. Again, bullish divergence on 13-week Twiggs Momentum strengthens the signal. Another retracement to find support is likely before there is a serious attempt at the September 2013 high of 1430, which would complete a large double bottom. Reversal below 1240 is unlikely, but would warn of another test of primary support at 1180.

Spot Gold

Silver is likely to follow gold. Breaking out above $20.50 would suggest another test of $25.00/ounce.

Having a quote screen is like having a slot machine on your desk — you end up feeding it all day. I get my price data after the close each day.
