Precious metals enjoyed a resurgence in October and November. And this had both Gold and Silver bulls looking for a major breakout.
Once, twice, three times… how many times the charm?
Well, needless to say, the rally hit a major hurdle once again this past week.
Today we look at a “daily” chart of the Gold ETF (GLD). A -1.3% decline on Friday punctuated a rough week where GLD fell over 3 percent.

$GLD SPDR Gold ETF Chart
GLD is currently testing its 20-day moving average. This is a good test of near term trend support. Below that and the 50/200 day moving averages (and prior low) come into play around $179-$181. This level is important support for December. Below that and we may see a sharp decline into January.
