In our previous article, we have highlighted the possibility that Gold can quickly retest the high in 2018. The chart below shows the yellow metal has broken above a long term bearish channel from Sept 5, 2011 high. In addition, it has successfully closed above the ascending trend support from December 3, 2015 low.
We mention that the next logical swing target for the yellow metal is to retest 2018 high at $1360 area. This level has provided resistance for the past 5 years and thus is a significant level to watch. A decisive break and close above $1360 suggests a more bullish implication with next swing target to as high as $1700. The chart below shows the 5 year rounding bottom formation in Gold
An Elliott Wave analysis of Gold against World Currency Unit (WOCU), a weighted basket of 20 fiat currency pairs covering top 20 world economies, also suggests a breakout
In the chart above, a break above 7.6.2016 high will create 5 swing bullish sequence from 12.30.2013 low and opens up more upside to $1021 – $1160 area.
