Bullish Reversal in Gold

Sun, 07/31/2022 - 22:19
COMEX gold futures reached a record high in 2011 at $1,911.60. After a four-year correction, the price reached a bottom at $1046.20 in late 2015. In August 2020, the price eclipsed the 2011 high, soaring to $2,063, and in March 2022, a higher high at $2,078.80. Since the March all-time peak, gold futures have made lower highs and lower lows, falling to $1,678.40 on July 21.
