Rarely does a sell setup get better than this one. We had that explosive run up in Gold this past week and as you can see, the buyers were the dumb money not the smart money.
As you can see from this chart, the commercials have been sellers of this market during this run upward. We are now once again in the 1000 resistance range, this being the fifth trip up here. From a technical standpoint, normally the 4th push breaks through and generates an explosive move, in this case it did not.
The key thing to note here is that the Large Traders who are trend accelerators have reached their maximum long position and have not been able to push this outside of the range it has been in. When you combine this with commercial selling, it leaves the small speculators with the burden of maintaining the buying on a level that will support this market.
As we all know anything can happen in the markets, but this is a very low risk opportunity for a potential huge trade on the downside. If you are a gold bug, I would not suggest buying this market at this juncture. If you are a two way trader, look for sell signals. Even if we get a breakout, it is hard to see how price could be maintained at that level with the dynamics I just described.
Also, as you can see sentiment has sky rocketed and rarely do rallies come from this type of situation.
