Symmetrical Triangle Pattern on Daily Chart of Gold as of 2020-02-16

February 16, 2020 at 23:10 by Vladimir Vyun

Gold prices have been moving sideways with ever-decreasing volatility after the rally at the end of the last year. As a result, a symmetrical triangle pattern has formed on the daily chart of the commodity. It is considered a continuation pattern, meaning that after the period of sideways movement prices are more likely to resume movement in the previous direction than to move in the opposite direction. In the present case, an upward breakout seems likely, especially considering that fundamentals were favorable to gold recently.

On the present chart, the yellow lines show the triangle itself. For those who want to bet on a bullish breakout, the cyan line, situated at 10% of the pattern’s width above the upper side of the triangle, offers an entry point. The green line, situated at the pattern’s width above the triangle, suggests a price level at which it would reasonable to lock in profit.
