Yesterday’s BofA’s MacNeill Curry warned that once above $1270, gold becomes “explosive” as the squeeze trap slams shut, which explains why the shorts are desperately defending the critical resistance redline. Today, the chief technician of Bank of Countrywide Lynch looks at the two other key correlation pairs: the S&P500 (via the Emini ESH4) and the USDJPY, which by virtue of being the key funding pair determines the price of risk in virtually every corner of the globe. He is not too happy with what he sees.
Here are his thoughts:

Finally, gold – redux: Gold upside continues – watch 1270
Gold continues to trade bullishly. Yesterday’s price action formed a Bullish Outside Bar on daily charts and NOW it is testing pivotal resistance at 1270. A close above should be the catalyst for short squeeze higher, exposing the confluence of resistance between 1362/1394.
