Most analysts and investors spend time debating about this or that "fundamental," which did (or maybe didn't) push the price of gold higher (or lower). But there is a more objective way to analyze precious metals: technical analysis. 

Editor of EWI's intensive Metals Specialty Service Mike Drakulich employs Elliott waves -- which rely on a defined, objective set of rules and guidelines -- as well as other technical indicators.
 
One of them is trendlines.
 
Trending markets tend to stay within trend channels. There is no "fundamental" explanation for it, but it is a fact. Moreover, when the price touches the lower or upper line of the trend channel, it tends to reverse.
 
Which brings us to gold. In his latest Metals Specialty Service daily forecast, Mike Drakulich shows subscribers this gold chart:  
 
 
Notice that when gold touched the upper trendline on at least the previous two occasions, prices reversed. Will it happen again?
 
While no indicator is accurate 100% of the time, Metals Specialty Service gives you right now the latest analysis of this and two other technical developments in gold: the position of the RSI momentum indicator, and the Elliott wave picture.

How to Use the Wave Principle to Identify Actionable Opportunities in Gold & Silver

In December 2010, the conventional wisdom claimed the fundamentals were unanimously bullish -- and that gold & silver would continue higher. Yet in December, EWI's Metals Specialty Service identified a textbook Elliott wave pattern: a "contracting triangle." This 20-page eBook walks you step-by-step through this opportunity-identifying pattern, by using an in-depth, real-world trading example.

The Elliott Wave Principle is a detailed description of how financial markets behave. The description reveals that mass psychology swings from pessimism to optimism and back in a natural sequence, creating specific Elliott wave patterns in price movements. Each pattern has implications regarding the position of the market within its overall progression, past, present and future. The purpose of Elliott Wave International’s market-oriented publications is to outline the progress of markets in terms of the Wave Principle and to educate interested parties in the successful application of the Wave Principle. While a course of conduct regarding investments can be formulated from such application of the Wave Principle, at no time will Elliott Wave International make specific recommendations for any specific person, and at no time may a reader, caller or viewer be justified in inferring that any such advice is intended. Investing carries risk of losses, and trading futures or options is especially risky because these instruments are highly leveraged, and traders can lose more than their initial margin funds. Information provided by Elliott Wave International is expressed in good faith, but it is not guaranteed. The market service that never makes mistakes does not exist. Long-term success trading or investing in the markets demands recognition of the fact that error and uncertainty are part of any effort to assess future probabilities. Please ask your broker or your advisor to explain all risks to you before making any trading and investing decisions.
