How to Play the New Gold Bull Market

Tuesday, Jun 25 2019 by

Gold looks ready to begin a sustained bull market in the foreseeable future.  I'm going to do a thread of blog posts applying Wyckoff analysis to pick optimal entry points in Gold ETFs and Gold Miners.  The objective of the series is to show analysis of price structures and expectations of future price action.  I'll conduct post-trade analysis as it'll be a helpful learning experiencing for myself and readers - it'll also add accountability.  

The images aren't showing, the guys are Stocko are working on it for me!  Please see the images on my website blog post here Blog Post

GLD%233.pngGLD ETF WEEKLY CHART 2011 - 21 JUNE 2019

Following the price advance on expanding spread and volume from Phase C to Phase D there was a small pullback in price of circa 6% on average and below average…
