Gold is said to be in a bull market again, but we disagree with that. According to our methodology, gold will only enter a bull market if it will trade for at least 5 consecutive days above $1291. So far, that has not happened, but could happen in June of 2016.
The reason why $1291 is such a hugely important price point for gold can be derived from gold’s long-term chart seen below. Basically, $1291 is both a key Fibonacci retracement level for gold’s secular uptrend (from 2001 till 2011) and the resistance line of the bear market. The combination of both has an extremely high importance.
