Gold Bugs index has created a series of lower highs since the highs back in 2011. Over the past year, the index is attempting to create a new series of higher lows and higher highs.
The recent decline in the index, took it down to 1-year rising channel (green shaded channel), where it might have created a “Weekly Reversal Pattern” (bullish wick) at (1) last week. This reversal pattern/bullish wick may be taking place at 1-year rising support. Each time the index has touched the bottom of this rising channel, it has created a bullish reversal wick. This potentially is the 3rd bullish reversal pattern/bullish wick, taking place at the bottom of the rising channel at (1).
Gold Bugs bulls do NOT want to see 1-year rising channel support give way!!!
