A fabulous week for all Nat’s gold traders who had the patience to wait for her trades to pay off.

The market stayed below the Pivot level all week in a very narrow range until Thursday evening, when the first returns from the UK ‘Brexit” vote began to trickle in.

Nat’s first buy level and the pivot set a well-defined entry level that was confirmed a soon as the price broke above it on the early vote returns.

From that point it was just a question of choosing your exit. Traders who took the first exit made about $5,000 per contract in the first couple of hours. Traders who held on for the second exit made about $7,000 per contract.

A wonderful return for those who entered her trade early and stayed with it to the end.

The Leave vote in the British referendum could lead to other countries holding similar stay/exit referendums. It will bring more uncertainty to the market and the underlying bias toward safe havens will remain for some time.

The PMO was heading toward a sell signal before last Friday, but with Friday’s fabulous rally, it turned up again and bottomed above its signal line which gives a new bullish outlook again.

Last Friday’s high (1362.60) is the resistance level of current intermediate-term rising channel. It could hold GOLD down for a while.

The multiple short-term support lines are lying at 1280-60 zone. The heavy volume on Friday resulted from a price imbalance. We may see GOLD stays inside last weekly range for consolidation and tries to do back-fill (1285, 1265).

But the brief pullback isn’t likely to do damage to the GOLD uptrend. We will continue to see buyers if there is a pullback.
