    on any big dips short term bears but long term bulls
    of Gold and amply rewarded over time.

  • If I'm reading the charts of IV/HV right, HV crossed IV on 4/12 and is remaining below IV. I continue to remain bullish long term. Also bullish on Dollar and Inverse EU. Have UUP and EUO but things can change depending on outcome in Greece.

  • TC:
    Pivot: 1530.

     

    Our preference: bullish above 1530 with 1690 & 1800 in sight.

     

    Alternative scenario: A downside breakout of 1530 would open the way towards 1415.

     

    Comment: a support base at 1530 has formed and has allowed for a temporary stabilisation.

     

    Trend: ST Ltd upside; MT Bullish, we have been bullish since 17 FEB 2010 (1114).
