The price of gold has been trading in a small range and closed at a new high. Is this the start of a new rally or a false break before a move lower?

A longer-term chart of the gold price shows the resistance levels ahead to overcome before making new all-time highs.

Emeco is trading in the bottom half of the range.

Travel stocks like Qantas and Flight Centre are drifting towards stop loss levels as is Ardent Leisure.

Whitehaven Coal is also drifting towards the lower end of the range and stop loss level.

Omni Bridgeway is the new name for the old litigation mob IMF Bentham. Price is trying to hold the recent break higher.

These are the top gaining stocks in the ASX 300 over the past 3 months and range from over 550 per cent for Afterpay to 100 per cent for G8 Education.

This graphic shows the importance of steady dividends over the long term in the Australian market as the capital appreciation for shares varies widely over different 5 year periods. Could the next five years bring some decent capital gains after the last five years of sub-par gains?
