The persistent decline in gold prices over the past two weeks has produced the first Capitulation Buy Alert since July 1997. The only other signals occurred in September 1988, December 1984 and September 1975. A period of consolidation, with an upside bias, is the most common characteristic in the following weeks.

Three occurrences saw prices rally back to the 50-day moving average within three weeks (currently $1488). The most recent examples saw prices recover to the 150-day average within twelve weeks (now $1619 and declining at $2 per day).
