The local market has been consolidating at these levels in an increasingly tight range and today’s positive price action has made a new 6 day high and yet still remains just within the triangular pattern.
The price of gold has been trading in a small range just below the highs and could be building up a head of steam for a further move higher into an August top, or maybe not, time will tell.
The gold/Dow ratio is showing the latest turn in direction. How far will this leg take us?
A somewhat blurry picture showing a few previous bullish runs in the gold price and where we are currently positioned. Another run similar to 2000-2012 could see price hit $5,000 an ounce. With all that money sloshing through the system courtesy of central bank stimulus and a lot of negative interest rate products it has to go somewhere.
Evolution has again bounced to be well above the trend channel. We took some more profit off the table today.
Aurelia Metals has been making a few higher lows.
We finally sold the Ooh Media holding yesterday.
A2 Milk looks to be consolidating the move higher.
Netwealth has finally moved above the $10 resistance level.
Resmed has moved above resistance after some sideways action and we bought a parcel today for the educational portfolio.
