I believe yesterday marked a breakout on the precious metals stock indexes as well as in gold, though they have different reversal patterns. Below is the combo chart we’ve been following that has the HUI on top and the SPDR Gold Trust (ARCA:GLD) on the bottom.

As you can see, the HUI broke above its double bottom trendline yesterday while GLD broke above its neckline. Both reversal patterns have a price objective back up to the top rails of their 18 month consolidation patterns. I’m still viewing this rally off of the November low as a counter trend rally within the bear market. Instead of having just four reversal points it looks like we’ll see at least six to complete their respective consolidation patterns. A serious break above the top rail of the 18 month consolidation would then call into question the validity of the bear market.

Below is a weekly chart for the ARCA Gold Miners ETF (GDM) that shows its 18 month blue bearish expanding falling wedge. The double bottom has a price objective up to the 700 area which coincides with the top rail.

Our line in the sand is now the double bottom trendline. Above is bullish and below is bearish. Note the price action at reversal point #4. If you recall, we went short on the breakout of that black dashed horizontal trendline using Direxion Daily Jr Gld Mnrs Bear 3X (NYSE:JDST) and Direxion Daily Gold Miners Bear 2X (NYSE:DUST). You can see the string of black candles that accompanied that decline. This week is just getting started but we have two white candles in place so far.

Let's now look under the hood to see what is running these indexes, starting with one of the big ones Barrick Gold Corporation (NYSE:ABX). The monthly chart shows where the neckline extension rail may come into play if we get this counter trend rally to the upside.

I’ll keep a close eye on these stocks and others for clues to see how high they may move. Right now it’s still a mixed bag with some looking more bullish than others. The top rail of the expanding falling wedge, on the GDM chart above, will tell the tale if or when we get there.
