The market then fell back a little, closing at 1615 and this morning is consolidating yesterday's big gains. The market is currently trading around 1609.
We mentioned to our subscribers a couple of days ago that, due to the extreme oversold market and overwhelming pessimism towards gold, there was a reasonable chance of an upside surprise following Bernanke's testimony.
Even though nothing new was said, the fact that the market had priced in gold negative news to such an extent meant that a rally resulted anyway.
This powerful rally suggests that the correction is over, however we want to see follow through buying today to confirm the move.
