Gold (GLD) One Step Away From Testing 2020 Highs

A month ago, I wrote an article that questioned “Is Gold Emerging From Hibernation?” I though I’d provide a brief update today.

Since that article, the Gold ETF has risen from about 5 percent and pushed through its 200 day moving average. This is constructive and keeps the near-term trend bullish for Gold. See chart below.

There is still formidable overhead resistance at the recent highs formed this January and March (near $182-183), as well as the highs from August 2020. Gold needs to breakout over one to get to the other.

For now, we could see gold touch up near $180, retrace and test the 200 day MA once more… and, if successful, rally higher and breakout to retest the 2020 highs. Now, that is the technician in me… but in reality, gold could simply rally unabated to the 2020 highs if it breaks through the January/March highs like butter. We’ll see.
