Gold Prices In the last week of the Q4 of 2011, Gold's price found a bottom at $1523.90 a troy ounce. Looking at the yearly chart , gold's price seems to be starting a new uptrend, however, the quarterly chart tells a different story. (above) In
the first month of the quarter, the chart shows us two golden crosses,
which is very bullish technical signal at any time and proved to be for gold's price. The first Golden Cross happened when the 10day Moving Average (MA) crossed above the 200day MA then a few days the 10day MA crossed the 50day MA. After the price of gold tested the $1800 price resistance level, in late February, the priced dropped , then a Death Cross Signal appeared on Gold's quarterly charts.
The first "death cross" happened when the 10day MA fell below the 50day MA then a few days later the 10day MA dropped below 200day MA, forming the second "death cross."

Platinum Price Chart - 1st qtr. 2012
Platinum Price Chart (Jan. 1st, 2011 - Mar. 31st, 2012)
Like Gold and Silver, Platinum's spot price hit bottom in the last week of the last quarter (
q4 2011) at $1347.60.
In addition, much like the Gold and Silver charts, Platinum developed a golden cross in January of 2012
, when the 10MA crossed above the 50MA. (seen in the chart below) However, unlike gold and silver, platinum's golden cross gave platinum's price solid support for the first two months of the quarter.
In addition, the second golden cross in the quarter occurred when the 10MA crossed above the 200MA. This gave platinum's spot price support for the rest of the quarter. But Volume was showing more sellers were coming back into the market and MACD was breaking down.
