Watch RSI on Monthly GLD/SPY Chart, Testing 20 Month Moving Average
3/01/2012 05:44:00 PM
Check this out. GLD/SPY is testing the 20 month moving average on the monthly chart and GLD/SPY's RSI (relative strength index) is at 52.20. Look at the MACD versus the exhaustive peaks as well. What's interesting is the RSI on GLD/SPY hasn't been below the key 50 level since GLD, the Gold ETF, started trading in 2004. If RSI breaks below that level and starts moving between 0 and 50, that would be new structural development for GLD's strength relative to SPY, the S&P ETF. In other words, If GLD/SPY's RSI breaks below 50, and/or the ratio technically breaks down and starts trending lower, it would mean GLD's relative strength and/or price action is underperforming SPY. They can still go up and down in tandem. GLD has outperformed SPY for years now, so in real terms the S&P hasn't done much. But there have been corrections along the way in the ratio. Anyone watching it?
