60 Minute Gold Charts and Gaps

Between August 24th and August 27th, I have posted bullish evidence in favour of gold stocks and the TSX. One of these posts was in reference to an island reversal that had formed in the gold stocks ETFs. Let's have a closer look at what unfolded by observing a 60 minute chart:

(you should hopefully be able to click on the image for a larger view)

What I find interesting is that the gap up was filled by only a 1 cent differential. This is because gaps tend to act as support and resistance. Once the gap was filled, it was all systems go for the gold bulls.

I have experienced this exact pattern before in October 2006 when I was trading Agnico Eagle Mines stock. The similarities between what happened above and what is shown below is uncanny:

Keep in mind that the above chart is a 60 minute chart again. This price action took place in the fall of 2006. Although not an island, please notice how the stock gaped up, filled the gap by a 1 cent differential, and then exploded higher. This is exactly what happened in the first chart posted.

I accidently ran into your blog as I enjoy "Headline Charts" and he referred to your volatility BB and B%.
Gold stocks have become a hotter topic recently with the breakout.

In any event, I will monitor your blog as I am currently long gold and am always interested in a "specialist" point of view.

Nice to see an active Canadian blog for a change
