We have marked the current Basing Point stop with the horizontal line. From the trading point of view a sell signal has already been given, and for our personal accounts we are out, but not short. Strangely the tide seems to have shifted against gold. We attribute this to hedge funds and large holders liquidating their holding and rushing to get chairs before the music officially ends. We don’t think it’s over, but this phase is over. So there will probably be a lot of skirmishes before the next phase is clear.
Observe a couple of things about this chart: the broken short term trendline and the unbroken long term trendline. This line is from July of 09. Remember. Bad things happen to good investors when long term trendlines are broken.
