How Technical Analysis Identified Gold’s Top

Over at where I post my daily market recaps I have been posting analysis on Gold via the Gold ETF, ticker GLD (view all the GLD updates). Since its latest breakout in July heading into its parabolic run and subsequent top I tracked the rise and now fall of Gold.

While Gold’s chart is by no means destroyed (it’s long term support trend lines remain in tact for now), technical analysis was the key factor in allowing me to accurately identify for readers the topping process.

Below are some of the key updates I posted in chronological order. Hopefully they can help paint a better picture in how the top was identified. If you have any questions feel free to simply leave a comment.
