I got a bit of hate e-mail over the last few weeks from the Gold Bugs who thought I didn’t know what I was talking about when I forecasted a multi-month consolidation and correction in Gold was imminent. I’ve written ad nauseum about crowd behavioral patterns as they related to both stock markets and precious metals. It should not come as a surprise that Gold is continuing to drop after a 34 Fibonacci month rally from $681 to $1910 per ounce. That rally came in five clear Elliott Waves and ended with a parabolic race to the top. I consistently warned my subscribers and readers of my articles about not being caught holding the bag and to take defensive measures.

My most recent update was to simply try to figure out whether the continuing correction in Gold would take the form of an ABC pattern or an ABCDE Triangle Pattern. It is becoming more clear that the official pattern is ABC. In English it means that the first leg down from 1910 to 1702 was the “A” Wave, the rally back up to 1920 was the “B” wave. The C wave is continuing underway and one of my longstanding targets is $1643, which is a Fibonacci fractal relationship to the prior lows and highs, and also conveniently fills in a “Gap” in the Gold chart in the 1650’s.

During these 4th wave consolidation periods, it reduces sentiment back down to normal levels and lets the economics of the move in Gold catch up with the price action that was extended. The first area to watch is the re-test of $1702 spot pricing for a C wave low, but the evidence is for a further drop to $1643 before I would get too interested in trying to game Gold to the upside.

Here is the chart I sent out 9 days ago with Gold at $1837 forecasting a possible C wave continuing lower:

I’ve stayed away from either shorting Gold or going long gold while I watch and confirm the 4th wave pattern. It’s simply the smart way to go knowing that upside will be difficult to obtain and downside risks are high. It does now appear that I am eliminating the Triangle pattern and sticking with the ABC Correction with the C wave still working its way lower. If $1702 breaks, then you should expect to see 1620-1643 as next pivot low ranges.

Good Call. I am saying the same on nearly all his articles. To wit, he has been and remains totally wrong about the PM's for years.

While USA has geared up its printing press to print tons of papers & swiss central bank has stoped selling gold, while the supply is much less than the demand of gold worldwide, how the gold is going down seems to be in the hand of some giant mafia. It proves that the whole world is being fooled by financial experts.
