Breakout

The weekly chart is now reporting a bull flag breakout – a continuation pattern which indicates the pullback from September highs above $1,555 has ended and the rally from lows near $1,270 registered in April-May has resumed.  

The flag breakout has opened the doors for a re-test of $1,557 (September high).  

Supporting the bullish case is the weekly relative strength index, which has violated the falling trendline.  

With prices trading well above the flag resistance of $1,483, a breakout will likely be confirmed on a weekly closing basis.
