Thursday we noted the potential formation of the latest short-term cycle low (STCL) in gold. The strong advance today generated a cycle low signal, confirming that a new short-term cycle is in progress.

Follow up:

The return to the STCL in July during the beta-phase decline of the previous cycle suggests that cycle translation is in question, so it will be important to monitor the developing alpha phase rally carefully for the next signal with respect to short-term direction.

On the weekly chart, the oversold reaction off of the intermediate-term low that we identified in early July faces an important test in August.

From a big picture perspective, the question remains whether the intermediate-term low in July will also prove to be a long-term low that marks the termination of the cyclical downtrend from 2011. It is always important to remember that a long-term bottom is a process, not an event. It is too soon to know if a cyclical bottom is forming, but price behavior during the next few weeks will indicate if the bottoming scenario is becoming more likely. Therefore, it will be imperative to continue monitoring the gold market closely.
