Analysis with price cycles is flashing the green light for gold. The first cycle is the seasonal cycle which is depicted in the monthly histogram below in graph one. The bars represent the expected return for each month. Note that August and September have been the two most bullish months in any year.

In terms of momentum, gold is oversold both daily and weekly. Sentiment is bearish for the metal and overly bullish for the dollar. This climate favors a golden rally.

The $1830 level is a reasonable target by the end of September.
