Is gold ready for primetime? The shiny metal is testing the $1360-$1370 level for the fourth time this year.

One factor that has helped to keep Gold elevated is a weaker U.S. Dollar.  The chart below highlights the Gold/U.S. Dollar ratio. Metals bulls want/need to see this ratio heading higher to send a bullish message to the broader metals sector.

As you can see below, this ratio has consolidated near its 2018 highs and is attempting to break out. It’s been a long tiring battle with plenty of set-backs for metals bulls over the last 5 years… but they aren’t giving up easily. A breakout here could produce another gold rush.

The ratio at mid-week is moving higher and is attempting to break above old highs at (2) and back into its falling price channel (1). A breakout here would send a bullish message to metals investors, one not seen in a few years.  Gold is knocking, will the bulls answer?
