Charts don't talk. If you abstracted that from the chart, you can always act on your take.

I like your investments in your second post.

As to the chart, I think a standard needs to to be done for each asset - e.g. p/e ratio for the s&p - to evaluate if it is over or under its mean.

As to gold; this guy is saying it is in a bull market until 2020
