Wiping the Slate

Gold and Silver - Wiping the Slate

In the past, there have been times when I’ve posted charts that I wish I could erase and forget about.  

I'm happy to say, this isn’t one of those times and it doesn't happen that often.

But when these times arise, I take responsibility and show you where the mistake was made, so we can both learn can learn from it. 

The reason why I titled this week's post 'Gold & Silver - Wiping the Slate' is because many of the old lines and patterns that have been posted on this guide's analysis for last several weeks have been wiped away, but not all.

In this week's charts, after I removed many lines and patterns in gold and silver's charts, a new bullish pattern was identified, see below for this new pattern.

This weeks analysis includes: Gold, Silver, U.S. Dollar, Platinum and Palladium.


Last week, the chart below was posted for silver, it showed that the precious metals fell below its Falling Wedge and Ascending Channel.

2017 - April 30th - Silver Price Chart

In last week’s analysis for silver, the following was stated:

“Sometime this week, we should see an end to silver’s falling price because its RSI is in oversold territory, plus, it has good support between the $17.20 and $16.80 levels.”

However, silver kept on falling in price, its RSI (Relative Strength Index) fell deeper into oversold territory; plus silver fell through all its support levels and didn’t stop its till it hit the $16.30 support level.

Now that silver has found support at the $16.30 level, silver's price should start to rebound. 

Its RSI is deep into oversold territory and its MACD is slowly starting to change direction.

This week, after all the lines from last week's chart were wiped away, a positive pattern has formed in silver's chart; a bullish falling expanding wedge.

In the week to come, we should see silver reverse its free fall in price and slowly start to move back up in price.

Note: The bottom of the highlighted support area in the chart below is $15.65.

Last week's chart below was posted with the following commentary;

In the chart (below), we see that gold fell below the ‘rising wedge pattern’ (confirming it) and it is now trading on the ‘rising expanding wedge’s' support level.

This week, it will be up to current events to determine gold’s direction.

If things in the world get worse in the mind of traders, we will see gold rise.

However, if things don’t get worse, we will see gold confirm the rising expanding wedge pattern and come closer to trade near the bottom of its ascending channel.

2017 - April 30th - Gold Price Chart

Things didn't get worse in the eyes of traders.

First, the French Presidential Candidate Emmanuel Macron’s poll numbers rose in France’s presidential polls, which calmed the market’s fears of a Marine LePen presidency.

Plus, North Korea didn’t set off any successful weapon tests last week, which also help calm the market's nerves.

The only thing that was wrong with that commentary was that gold didn’t stop falling in price at the Ascending Channel’s bottom trend-line, it continued to fall through it.

2017 - May 7th - Gold Price Chart

Like silver, gold’s chart this week is showing a bullish falling expanding wedge pattern.

Even though gold looks like it may fall a little more in price, we should see gold slowly reverse its pattern, like silver, and move higher this week.

Last week the following was stated about the chart below:

The rise of the Euro is what caused the big drop in the price of the U.S. Dollar, and it is why the dollar is now trading along the bottom support level of the rising expanding wedge (bear pattern).

The final vote for the French elections will be on May 7th, traders will be happy if Macron wins.

If that is the outcome, we can expect the dollar to fall below the rising expanding wedge’s bottom level – confirming the bear pattern.


2017 - April 30th - US Dollar Price Chart

Trader’s didn’t wait till the election on May 7th to sell the dollar, once Macron started to rise in the polls on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, they started to buy euros.

As they sold the dollar, they confirmed the 'Rising Expanding Wedge' pattern that has been posted on this guide’s analysis since November 2016.

In addition, as the dollar broke below the bottom trend-line of the rising expanding wedge, it also fell below the $99.50 support level, turning it into a strong resistance level.

This week, now that the French Presidential Elections are over, and the selling in the dollar is over too (for now), we should see the dollar’s price rise, but it is doubtful it will break back above the $99.50 in the near future.

For the last several weeks, platinum has been trading along the bottom of its ascending channel, then early last week it fell through the bottom of the channel.

Note: 'Ascending' & 'Descending' Trading Channels always fail, when the price breaks either above or below a channel, it is a failure of the channel.   A break in a channel shows a change in the consensus of the asset’s market.

In this week’s chart, the platinum chart is showing a few possible patterns but nothing concrete enough for lines to be drawn.   If a pattern starts to take shape its chart will be posted next week.

Palladium is the only precious metals still trading inside its 'Ascending Channel, however, Palladium often trades separately from the other precious metals.

This week, palladium could complete the 'rising (bear) wedge pattern' or continue to trade inside it; only time will tell.


In addition, for those who like these two precious metals, you will want to pay attention to Auto Sales (see article below).

Currently, Platinum & Palladium's primary market is in the catalytic converters industry, and as auto sales drop so will the prices of these precious metals.
