A rare cluster of resistance is in play for the US$/Gold ratio at (1). Resistance is resistance until broken. If this resistance would hold and the ratio would turn lower, Gold could blast off, which would benefit Gold, Silver and Mining stocks!
What do Gold, Silver and Mining bulls NOT want to see happen? If the cluster of resistance is taken out to the upside (US$ stronger than Gold), metals could get crushed!
The Power of the Pattern would say this is not your usual test of resistance and what happens at (1), will tells us a ton about the correct metals trade going forward. If you are interested in Power of the Pattern ideas applied to the metals market, we would be honored if you were a Premium or Metals members.
