This now brings us to our current 2011 gold and silver parabolic.
So here is our present situation with gold. It appears to me that the midpoint price consolidation area has occurred beneath the $1425 price level. Gold appears ready to rocket launch into the upper half of its parabolic move. Price is projected to the $1700 area.
This current week appears as a red candle breather, similar to the price action of the preceding intermediate cycle. The True Strength Index (TSI) momentum indicator is rising above ZERO and I expect it will continue to rise.
Silver is a step ahead of gold in that it has already broken above its midpoint consolidation price area of $32, and is presently trading near $36. The weekly TSI indicator as yielded a bullish trend line break buy signal and I expect silver to continue higher week after week, as it has in the 2nd half of each previous parabolic move. Using the midpoint consolidation concept, price is projected some 40% higher to around $48.
Finally, here is a weekly chart of PowerShares DB US Dollar Index Bullish Fund (UUP) which I am using as a proxy for the chart of the US Dollar.
We can see that the US Dollar is literally on the precipice of a waterfall decline below key support at 22. This roughly translates into 76 on the US Dollar Index.
The TSI momentum indicator is below ZERO and falling. This is bad news for the US Dollar and I view it highly unlikely it will be able to rebound, let alone hold this level. Once the US Dollar begins to fall below support it will trigger both panic and a flight to gold and silver. And I believe this will power the concluding leg of the 2011 gold and silver parabolics.
