ETF Chart of the Day: Gold

March 5th at 3:00pm by Paul Weisbruch, Street One Financial

The largest exchange traded fund for gold, SPDR Gold Shares (NYSEArca: GLD), saw inflows last week despite taking a huge hit last Wednesday.

Our market technician David Chojnacki noted that short term technical support levels were violated last Wednesday, but positive longer term technicals are still intact.

We also note that the 50 and 200 day moving averages in GLD, as well as in another popular Gold ETF, iShares Gold Trust (NYSEArca: IAU), are both relatively in line with each other currently and seemed to provide some technical support and relief last week during the fallout.
