For the past 5 years, gold prices have traded sideways. There were plenty of “trades” to be made, but that type of price action tends to grind out long-term bulls and bears.
You can see this in today’s “monthly” closing chart for gold (shown above).
Gold bulls caught a break recently when the metal broke out above its multi-year downtrend line at (1) and (2). That spurred a big advance in metals and mining stocks.
Can gold bugs and bulls keep the momentum going? We should find out shortly.
