Gold ETFs broke through their 200 Day Moving Average, are gold ETFs looking bearish again?

goldbar Gold ETFs Break 200 Day Moving Average AgainGold ETFs and the gold spot price took another dive below thier respective 200 Day Moving Averages today.  The gold spot price declined .34% to close at $1658.40 per ounce, while the SPDR Gold Trust ETF (NYSEARCA:GLD) and the iShares Gold Trust ETF (NYSEARCA:IAU) dropped .47% and .48% respectively.

From a technical perspective, gold ETFs and gold prices could go anywhere now, as they have again broken their 200 Moving Day Averages.  The 200 Day Moving average generally serves as a very strong support level for funds and prices, and a solid break through that support level typically indicates bearish sentiment.  With the gold spot price’s MACD hovering at .360 and with gold spot price’s low RSI of 38.25, anything could go for gold prices and gold ETFs.  However, the break through the 200 Moving Day Average could be all that gold needed to turn bearish.

From a fundamental level, equities have been shooting through the roof lately, with the S&P 500 just reaching its 5 year high today.  Typically gold prices track with equities, however with strong confidence in the equity market, perhaps investors have lost interest in gold, especially in light of the fiscal cliff resolution.  Gold investors typically flock to gold and gold ETFs to be “safe,” and right now investors do not need to be safe.  With the upcoming congressional battles however, gold prices could rise again once more.
