Gold in danger of a sell off to $1,245

Bookmark and Share

Gold price is getting rejected once again at the $1,283-86 resistance area. Price has been making higher highs and higher lows since late October, but the inability to break above the resistance area is a big warning for bulls. Short-term support is at $1,272. Breaking below that level will confirm the bearish scenario that Gold is heading towardds $1,245-50 support area.

Price has also reached the 50% Fibonacci retracement. Gold's upward move from $1,263 is not impulsive. At least not a clear impulsive move. The last chances of this move being impulsive will get crushed if price breaks below support of $1,272. Confirmation will come with the break below $1,262.


If the next leg down in Gold price is equal to the first decline, we should reach $1,245 before we resume the longer-term up trend we are currently in since 2015. I continue to be a long-term Gold bull, believing this pull back in Gold prices is a buying opportunity before the next upward move towards $1,400-$1,500.
