Gold - The obvious bullish scenario

FX:XAUUSD   Gold/U.S. Dollar
Due to the liquidation wave in the COMEX future paper market the gold             price is down more than $135 (-9.8%) from its recent high in early July. This is a healthy and necessary pullback which offers the chance to buy the dip. The price target of the multi-month descending triangle pattern has already been reached at $,1240.
Basically gold             has just corrected back to its rising 200-day moving average ($1,262). Yes, gold             did shoot over to the downside but this important moving average should act like a rubber band and is already stretched. As well Gold             now is getting pretty oversold on its weekly chart for the first time since last December and it has reached the weekly lower Bollinger Band ($1,248) which is usually a very strong support on the first attack.
Therefore a bounce could quickly bring gold             back to the falling 18-day moving average ($1,299). Even a recovery directly back to the 50-day moving average ($1,319) would be possible. But from a rational perspective gold             likely will need more time to digest this pullback.
What would increase the odds for the bullish scenario?
- Gold             can quickly recover above $1,300
- Gold             above $1,325 would be extremely bullish
- Gold             can at least hold above $1,240 and especially above $1,220
- ETF demand for gold             remains strong
- Next CoT report shows strongly reduced commercial short position
How can we make money in this scenario?
- Continue with our strategy
- Buy this dip in gold             and the mining stocks
- Be aware that we could see a bounce followed by another sell off followed by a sustainable rally towards $1,500
In the bigger picture the midterm price target around $1,500 - $1,530 until spring 2017 will be active again should gold             move above $1,325.
