So remember to watch the charts and not just listen or read information without looking at the charts.
So are we too late into the gold rush? Let’s take a look at the charts to help us answer that. Currently gold is in a consolidation. With a lower support at around $1850 and and upper range of around $1931. Its below its 20 & 50ema of around $1907 so moving up above it is a first positive sign. It is also slightly below the short term uptrend line but regaining its foot above it at around $1914 would be another positive sign.
