From Decision Point:
Gold has also made a decisive break above important overhead resistance. I have been concerned that gold would not be able to do this because a rally in the dollar seemed imminent, but the dollar has failed to rally, and gold has shown its strength. At this point I wonder if the oversold condition of the dollar will lead it to decline even further. The technical expectation for gold at this point is for a pullback toward the recently penetrated resistance, now support.
Stock prices have continued to move higher in spite of broad expectations for a decent correction. Looking at the weekly chart of the S&P 500, we get a longer-term perspective. The price index is headed into an apex where the long-term declining tops line and the top of the ascending wedge pattern converge. It sure looks like a rally stopper to me. The crystal ball says rally top should be in place within a week or two.
