TECHNICAL ANALYSIS: Krugerrand at an all-time high

Aug 06 2019 17:37
Colin Abrams

With the stock market currently in turmoil, the one area that has been doing extremely well is gold (and gold shares). A chart of the Krugerrand is presented that shows numerous upside targets, together with an important upside breakout currently taking place.


Investment Strategy: HOLD/BUY IF NOT IN

Long-Term Trend: UP 



Overall Comment: The Krugerrand is currently breaking out above line 3, which (interestingly) confirms a ‘cup and handle’ pattern from 2016. This is a bullish chart pattern. It is making a new all time high as well. 

• We have had targets of 22 600 and 25 000 for some time. But the cup and handle is now pointing to a further target of R27 730 over time. (Note, that assumes it closes above line 3, 21 000 this month).

• Its monthly Stochastic has entered its overbought region, so there will be pullbacks long the way.

• But the Krugerrand is very much still a hold, and should be bought if not in. 

• Closest support is line 4 at 19 640 for September. But any weakness will be buyable.
