Daily chart of the World Gold Index from February 2011.
A fibonacci retracement is drawn from the lows in Jan to the double peak in Aug / Sept. Gold is in a trading range between the 61.8% and 50% fibonacci levels. Gold is up ~13.7% year to date and can also be seen as consolidating after the huge run up between July and early Sept.
The turn of the month may bring a movement either up or down. (Being a PM bull, I'm leaning towards the upside). Being bullish at this time is opposite to the chart formation as Gold is trading under the 20, 50 and 100 day moving averages.
