Gold: Elliott Wave Counts (Update 4th Feb 2018)

|Includes: DGLD, SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD)

Gold has overshot my previous high expectations. However, I believe that this is what EW terms a "throwover".

In all honesty, the sub-counts looks weird and thus it may be good to keep it simple and look at the big picture (which didn't change since my last posts).

I believe that we are finally seeing the downtrend for Gold and I won't bet that it will see a new high for some time yet.
