Gold signals potential breakout as price once again achieves golden cross technical

In today's world, if all markets were freely traded then fundamentals and technicals would actually mean something to traders and investors.  However, with most major banks having been found guilty over the past five years of rigging almost every market, and the Federal Reserve assuring that equity markets will never go down any real extent due to trillions in cheap money, the once long-standing indicators of bullish and bearish sentiments are only relevant to the most ardent of investors.

But with that being said there are still thousands of analysts and traders who rely heavily upon technical analysis to make investing decisions and forecast market direction for a given asset class.  And on May 22 one of these technicals moved positive after weeks of price declines to have once again achieved the signal of a golden cross.

And the asset which has signaled this bullish sentiment and technical move is gold.

Gold is up nearly 10 percent this year and might be primed for more gains if a signal tracked by technical analysts triggered Monday is any guide. 
A small gain was enough to push the metal's 50-day moving average price above the average price of the last 200 days, forming what's known as a "golden cross" in technical analysis circles. This is seen as a positive signal that demonstrates an asset is outperforming so well in the short-term that it may reverse a longer term downtrend. - CNBC
