Jordan Roy-Byrne: Gold Cup & Handle Pattern Update

The Daily Gold, Released on 9/29/22

Gold’s cup and handle pattern is broken from the standpoint of a potential breakout in the next 6 to 9 months that could launch it to the initial target of $3000. However, the cup is 9 years long and the handle typically requires one third of the time or longer. That puts a breakout in summer of 2023 at the earliest. The pattern is not broken if Gold rallies back to $2050 even from a low of $1500. Silver is an example of a broken cup and handle pattern as Silver’s handle never came close to rallying back near $50 resistance. In fact, Silver has, for the most part, remained below $27-$28. A bullish handle on Silver would require the market consolidating from $27 to $50. In both cases, whenever Gold rallies back to $2050 and Silver rallies back to $50, there will be extremely bullish technical setups.
