Gold Remains in Price Channel

From Chart of the Day:
Today's chart provides some long-term perspective in regards to the gold market. As today's chart illustrates, gold has been in an extremely strong bull market since 2001 with the pace of its uptrend increasing over time. Recently, however, the price of an ounce of the shiny metal has dropped significantly after bumping up against resistance (red line) and is now down $300 in a little under six weeks. This sharp pullback has brought gold back down to long-standing support (green line) of what has been a nearly three-year accelerated uptrend.
