Triple Peak Pressuring GLD


The big picture that is evolving in the SPDR Gold Shares (NYSE: GLD) shows that yesterday's high at 139.00 represented the third failed attempt to hurdle and sustain above 139.00 during the past eight weeks. Today's sharp gap-down open and downside follow-through (so far) leaves behind a triple peak that is putting increasing pressure on the Nov-Jan support line, which cuts across the price axis today at 134.75.

Let's notice that the rising 50-day moving average also is in the vicinity of the near-term support line, at 134.58, which adds more significance to a violation of the 134.75/50 support area.

If 134.75/50 is violated and sustained, given the pressure exerted by the triple peak, it could trigger an avalanche of selling pressure that drives the GLD towards 130.00-129.80 quickly.
