Between the pink rising megaphone and blue megaphone, trading formation rules now pretty much lock gold into a textbook megaphone-inside-megaphone triangle scenario.
An upwards breakout from the red triangle would be an upwards breakout from an inverse head and shoulders bottom with a triangle right shoulder. The technical inverse H&S target would be at least 1800 but the long move sideways would imply a new all-time high for gold.
An upwards breakout would usually mean gold was extending its long-term rising megaphone (blue in chart above).
A downwards breakout, which is more likely, would target the 700s and likely lower in the course of forming a bottom. A downwards breakout would complete the blue-rising megaphone with a retrace to its bottom.
