Gold Futures (GC) Weekly is Bull Flagging, But.....

COMEX:GC1!   Gold Futures
Gold is currently in a flag similar to that experienced last March and April. Last year's flag broke down, very unusual for this formation (normally it is a continuation pattern). Most likely the breakdown can be explained by the strong ramp up in the dollar index last year. Also, gold seasonality is usually weakest starting in April - June.

This flag is very tight, and being very near the all time high of 2089.20 at the flag peak of 2085.4 -- so I am biased in thinking that this flag may not reverse, even should DXY show strength. Of course, there are numerous geopolitical and other macro events which can have a positive effect on gold, if they create uncertainty.

Key areas to watch. A break below 1985.60 and hold and it will signal another flag breakdown. A break above and hold of 2085.40 (flag peak) and it signifies a bull flag continuation. These are simple areas to watch and are significant.
