Gold in Australia

Australian gold producers in a far better place.

On 23 November 2016, I wrote about the possibility of gold ($1212.00) testing the breakout level of $1100. In the following weeks, a $90 move lower took place but did not reach the charted target price. Three weeks ago, gold posted an inside week (IP) with this week completing a pivot point reversal.

During this time, Australian dollar gold price also crossed back over $1600/oz and is now putting the Australian gold producers in a far better place.

The underlying commodity would be expected to find resistance at the breakdown level of $1200. In the current movements of these underlying gold stocks, the same picture would be expected. As a form of risk management on a long position, the stop loss could be placed under this first week of January’s low price, for the commodity this is $1145.00.

For the individual gold stocks, the low of this week can be identified and used as the stop loss for a long position. Of the charts displayed, all have had a strong reaction to the underlying with pivot point reversal price action in place, a continuation of price moves would be expected.
