On a Daily, Weekly and Monthly Basis

This report will examine the XAU Index and Newmont Mining on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. A technical analysis for each securitys chart will be presented with an explanation on where the security is currently. It will also provide an explanation of what price action needs to occur to maintain the prevailing analysis. Additionally, long term and short term support and resistance prices will be provided.

First a little background information on the Alpha Trend Analysis system...

This system has been in development for almost 15 years. The Alpha Trend is the primary trend line that I have created to analyze the prevailing trend of a security. It is an adaptive moving average using trigonometric functions. It is from this primary trend line that all other formulas are derived. There are six moving average trend lines that are used to analyze a security. The short-term indicators are upper and lower bands, which are 2 days in length. The mid term indicator is the Alpha Trend, indicated by the bold red line, which is several weeks in length. Lastly there are three moving averages of the Alpha Trend. The one-year moving average, which is red colored. The five-year, which is bright green colored and the ten-year, which is black colored. The chart contains two windows. The top window indicates whether the current position is long, short or neutral. A long position is indicated by one (1), a short position is indicated by negative one (-1) and a neutral position by a zero (0). The bottom window contains the security's information along with the six moving averages. At the very bottom of the chart the primary trend of either bullish or bearish is indicated.

Above is the monthly chart for the XAU Index. Since November 2001, the XAU has not closed below the Alpha Trend on a monthly closing basis. Since January 2002, the one-year moving average of the Alpha Trend has held and proven to be a major support line, which currently is at 86.47. A close below the Alpha Trend currently 92.73 would suggest a moderate break in the bullish case for the XAU Index. A close on a monthly basis below the one-year moving average of the Alpha Trend of 86.47 would suggest a major break in the bullish case for the XAU.

In conclusion, all three charts are showing a bearish call on the XAU Index. The XAU Index has pulled back to a major support price of the Alpha Trend and closed above it on a monthly basis. This suggests that the XAU Index has found a bottom and should resume moving back up. The XAU Index will have to move above the resistance prices noted in the daily and weekly analysis mentioned above and there will be some consolidation in those prices areas before a break out to the upside.
