The price of gold fell below the current up trend line with a big range down after forming a classic bullish divergence pattern over the past month on the daily chart including a bearish candle last Thursday signalling a potential downwards move.

The local market has been grinding higher and could be overdue for a correction.

Local gold stocks suffered including Westgold which we hold for the longer term with a wide placed stop.

Evolution also fell and still remains some distance from the weekly trend line.
