Believe we're gliding down the highway

Gold Chart Pattern
After briefly crossing above its three EMAs into bull territory and touching a high of 1232 on May 18 ‘15, the daily bar chart pattern of gold resumed its down trend.
A bearish pattern of ‘lower tops and lower bottoms’ has formed. Gold’s price is trading below all three EMAs in a bear market that is entering its 34th month.
Daily technical indicators are looking bearish. MACD is below its signal line in negative zone. RSI is below its 50% level. Slow stochastic is inside its oversold zone.
Avoid bottom fishing. Volume bars clearly show that brief spells of buying are being immediately followed by selling.
On longer term weekly chart (not shown), all three weekly EMAs are moving down, and gold’s price is trading below them in a long-term bear market. Weekly technical indicators are in bearish zones.
Silver Chart Pattern
The following comments appeared in the previous post on the daily bar chart pattern of silver: “The bullish pattern of ‘higher tops and higher bottoms’ from the Mar ‘15 low of 15.25 remains in force – but may not be for long. Bears are still ruling the chart.”
Silver’s price has dropped below the Apr 24 ‘15 low of 15.55 and touched a low of 15.40 on Jun 30 ‘15 – negating the bullish pattern and establishing a bearish pattern of ‘lower tops and lower bottoms’.
