Gold and USD Cycles: A Roadmap

Monday will be day 6 of Gold's third Trading Cycle (TC) out of the December 2016 Yearly Cycle Low (YCL). Next week's price action will be critical in determining if we will see a higher high in this Intermediate Cycle (IC) or just a secondary high that will set the IC downtrend line into the next IC Low. Based on my cycle work, I do believe the Gold Bull has resumed, however, the transitions from Bear to Bull markets are typically epic battles that take time to play out.

Wth that as background, third Trading Cycles have been pivotal for Gold over the past 5 years as only bullish 3rd TC I can find on the charts over this period was during the first 6 months of 2016 out of the December 2015 YCL. That 3rd TC topped on day 17. Other than that one, my chart work shows that every other 3rd Trading Cycle since the 2011 ATH topped on or before day 11 (many topped on or before day 9). My intent here is not be be overly bearish going into next week but rather to provide you with the best guidance I can based on recent cycle history. This post shows the potential transition from Bear to Bull in the Gold market but you can see that it is still a work in process as we enter next week.

This weekend, I will focus on Weekly charts for a longer term perspective. From a daily chart outlook, I don't have much to add to this post from late last week.

Again, Gold is on day 6 on Monday, and the following Monday would be day 11. I will be watching closely for topping action especially since the USD is deep in its timing band to find a short term Trading Cycle Low. That said, the USD's TC's have been running longer than the normal timing band lately so we could see some more downside action in the days ahead.

My last chart is a weekly on the USD since last May's Yearly Cycle Low (YCL). Note that Price is nearing the 30weam where the dollar has found support at recent lows. Remember that a rising 30ema on the weekly that supports price at major lows is bullish (Classic Weinstein Stage 2 Bull market price action).
