Gold and Crude Oil Trend Analysis

With a Chart Analysis Score of -50, gold is stuck in a trading range. Despite the move up and pullback in gold last week, it did not change the status of our weekly Trade Triangle. We remain positive on this market longer term and expect we will see it move much higher in 2012 as inflation kicks in around the world. Long term traders should remain positive for this precious metal. Intermediate term traders should be out of this market at the moment and on the sidelines waiting for a buy signal with the weekly Trade Triangle.

BIG PICTURE   Trading Range
Monthly trade triangles for Long term trends = Bullish
weekly trade triangles for intermediate term trends = Bearish
daily trade triangles for short term trends = Bearish
Combined Strength of Trend Score = -50

The $101.75 area basis the January contract appears to be offering resistance for crude oil at the present time. Crude oil remains the shining star of the commodity world and has become the currency of choice. With all of our Trade Triangles green, giving us a +90 Chart analysis score, it would appear as though we are in a strong bullish trend. At the present time all our Trade Triangles remain in a positive mode which is the direction of the major long term trend. Major resistance remains between the $102 and $103 levels. Long term, and intermediate term traders should be long this market with appropriate money management stops.
