.XAU Gold/Silver Index
|Since reaching an overbought high of 66.54 on May 18th following a rapid 6-week runup, the .XAU has entered a steady freefall, giving back almost all of its 4/3-5/18 gains. The index is now at critical support at the 61.8% retracement (51.146) of its rally from the 10/27/00 low of 41.61. Additional strong support exists from 48.5-49.7. RSI, MACD, OBV, and Stochastics continue to decline, and have yet to reach oversold territory. A retest of the 48.5-49.7 support is likely in the near term, with the next major support then at 45.6-46.0 (a level that held in both February and April), and at October's low of 41.6. Upside resistance is at 54.1 and 57 (strong resistance).
