Gold's Weakness Contained in Rising Channel While Silver Slid Lower (5/12)

Gold (XAU/USD)
Gold 4H 5/16/2011
Short-Term to Medium-Term
- Gold has been consolidating, but the weakness  has been contained within a rising channel , and supported by the 200SMA in the 4H chart.
- The momentum is still bearish in the short-term, but if the RSI reading in the 4H chart rises above 60, it is ranging instead of bearish.
- A return to 1575 is possible with a break above the 61.8% retracement level near 1530 .
- The daily chart below shows an upside swing projection to 1650 (suggested by a positive reversal signal where the RSI low was lower, but the corresponding price low was higher). This mediumt term bullish continuation scenario opens up with a break above 1575 .
- Note that the RSI reading in the daily chart is still above 40, maintaining a longer term bullish momentum.
- Also note that gold is in a long-term bullish mode, and even if the market extends the current correction in a swing projection manner, we are still within a long-term rising channel and the 200SMA in the daily chart.
- The point is that the bearish outlook is very tentative, and a major reversal should not be considered until at least a break below 1400 . On the otherhand, the bullish continuation scenario appears to be setting up.
