Here’s Why Gold Could Be Headed To $3000

by Kimble Charting

In the spring of 2020, I highlighted the potential for a very bullish long-term pattern for Gold.

That pattern was the popular “cup with handle” formation. At that time, it was still attempting to fill out the right side of the “cup” formation.

Today, we take another look at the “monthly” chart of gold and get an update on that pattern.

Gold “Cup With Handle” Formation

Eyes $3000 Price Target?

As you can see in today’s chart, Gold has completed the “cup” pattern and is currently pulling back into what could be the “handle” part of the formation. Ideally, Gold bulls want to see a decline down to the $1550-$1600 level before another big rally begins.

As we noted back in the spring of 2020, the Fibonacci symmetry of this cup formation is very intriguing. Gold peaked at its 261% Fibonacci extension price level in 2011 at (1) and again in 2020 at (2) – this formed the “cup”. And a pullback into the 38.2% Fibonacci of the “cup” formation would be an ideal spot for the “handle” to form.

READ  Been seeing alot of posts with questions like "Are we in a bubble?", "Could this be like 1999 or worse?" , "We haven't had a correction since 08-09 so aren't we due?", "COVID-19 is on the rise, could this be the catalyst for a pop?"... Invest in the future, not next month!

Does Gold need to form a “handle” before moving higher? Not necessarily… but it sure would help Gold get to $3000 a lot sooner. Stay tuned!
