Cycle Trading: Gold Recognition Day


Gold rallied on Thursday, which I believe was a Recognition Day.   Gold sliced through the declining 50 day MA to close above the upper daily cycle band in a clear and convincing manner indicating an end to the daily downtrend and the start of a new daily uptrend.  This reminds me of the Natgas Recognition day we discussed back on 9/18.

The similarities include:
* Recent cycle low
* A test of the 50 day MA
* A slight retrace from the 50 day MA
* Boom
* Then the ensuing rally
