Gold's 4th Wave Consolidation Nears Completion and Breakout

Back in August with Gold running to parabolic wave 3 sentiment induced highs, I warned of a major top and multi-month correction. We all know that the fundamentals for the shiny metal are stronger than ever, but you must keep in mind that the market prices all that in well l in advance. Coupled with excessively bullish sentiment that was capped off by a USA Today cover with Gold on it, it was easy to see a major sentiment correction and therefore price decline was at hand.

If we fast forward a few months from my then blasphemous call for a top and multi month consolidation, we can see that Gold has lost favor with the taxi driving crowd and the shoe shine group both. What has in fact happened is we have had what I call a 4th wave triangle pattern, which works to consolidate prior gains. Triangle simple let the economics of the underlying security or commodity catch up with the prior bullish price action. In this case, Gold was in a powerful wave 3 stage advance from the October 2008 $681 lows and over a 34 Fibonacci month period of time. When everyone on the stage was convinced this act would continue, it was time for the curtains to draw.

The 4th wave so far has been characterized by a typical pullback in terms of price and also time. The drop to the $1530's is a normal 31% Fibonacci retracement of the entire 34 month advance. In addition, the pattern that has clearly emerged lines up as a typical 4th wave triangle pattern, which has 5 total waves within. Waves 1, 3, and 5 are down and 2 and 4 are up. We are currently finishing wave 4 to the upside from the low $1600's and likely to see a wave 5 near term to the downside. As long as Gold holds above $1681 levels, I expect we will see a breakout north of $1775 to confirm that wave 5 up in Gold has begun.

Targets for the 5th and final wave of this suspected 13 year cycle of Gold begin at $2360 and then we will update from there. Below is the chart I sent to my paying subscribers last Thursday and we can see that this pattern is still playing out. Aggressive investors would be wise to get long the metal on this final pullback, with a stop below 1680 to be conservative.
