Gold: The final nail

Gold respected its new resistance level after a brief retracement and is again testing short-term support at $1065/ounce. 13-Week Twiggs Momentum peaks below zero indicate a strong primary down-trend. Breach of support is likely and would provide further confirmation of a decline to $1000/ounce*.

Spot silver has also broken long-term support, reinforcing the gold signal.

The Gold Bugs Index, representing un-hedged gold stocks, is testing primary support at 105. Failure of support is likely and would be the final nail in the coffin (for gold).

The stronger Dollar is weakening demand for gold, with the Dollar Index testing resistance its 12-year high at 100. Rising 13-week Twiggs Momentum indicates a healthy (primary) up-trend. Breakout above 100 is very likely and would signal an advance to 107*.
