Over the past few years, on the gold price chart, we were seeing the formation of a chart pattern called a symmetrical triangle.

What is a symmetrical triangle? It forms when there is a preceding downtrend and a developing uptrend. Usually, the price is consolidating (the trading ranges are getting smaller) when this happens.

A symmetrical triangle isn’t a bullish or bearish pattern. You can only tell where the price will move once it breaks out of the triangle.

If the price breaks above the triangle, an upside move usually follows.

If the price breaks below the triangle, a downside move usually follows.

Thanks to the move in gold prices over the past few months, the gold price has broken out of the triangle.

As gold prices moved higher, momentum indicators like the moving average convergence/divergence (MACD) and the relative strength index (RSI) indicators trended higher as well.

Remember, without momentum, you really can’t do much.

These two momentum indicators are suggesting that the momentum is in favor of the buyers. The buyers are increasing in number; they are controlling the price and could take it much higher.

Saying the very least, this is all very bullish for gold prices.

How High Could Gold Prices Go?

When it comes to technical analysis, there are some guidelines on where the price could go after there’s a certain trigger.

With a symmetrical triangle, there are targets as well.

Technical analysts usually take the widest part of the triangle (the price range) and add or subtract it to the breakout point, depending on whether the price broke above or below the triangle.
