XAUGBP (Gold/GBP) rallied from 2008 low to 2011 peak in 7 swings after it started correcting the cycle from 2008 low which lasted 4 years and ended in July 2015 at 61.8 Fibonacci retracement of the rally from 2008 low to 2011 peak. Since then instrument has rallied again in 7 swings to 1069 (July 2016). We have not yet seen a break of 2011 peak which is needed to negate another extension lower within the correction and to confirm that next leg higher has started but we notice that XAUAUD (Gold/AUD) has already broken above 2011 peak which suggests Gold against GBP is lagging and should also continue to break above 2011 peak.

XAUGBP (Gold/GBP) Daily Elliott Wave chart
Metal is proposed to have ended a cycle from July 2015 low and should now ideally pull back in 7 swings before rally resumes towards 1171 – 1285 area initially followed by 1470 – 1654 region. This view will remain valid as far as pivot at July 2015 low remains intact. Alternatively, wave (x) correction could have ended on 12/31/2013 low and XAUGBP could be doing a FLAT Elliott Wave structure from there. In either case, we believe 961 – 908 area would see buyers for a 3 wave bounce in wave (X) to fail below 1069 and another extension lower in wave (Y) of ((X)) or take the metal to new highs above 1069 to complete a FLAT structure from 12/31/2013 low before making a larger pull back to correct cycle from 12/31/2013 low.
