GOLD AND SILVER PRICE ANALYSIS AND CHARTS.

  • Gold’s recent pull-back has come to a halt ahead of a week packed full of risk events.
  • Silver caught between trend and 200-day moving average.

GOLD FADES LOWER BUT RISK LIES AHEAD

Gold sits just above an important support zone as it tries to keep gains made last week. While the short-term chart pattern remains bearish, with lower highs and lower lows seen since 20, the week is full of high-risk events and data releases which may help to underpin at its current levels.

The daily chart shows gold nearing the $1,276 – $1,281/oz zone that acted as minor resistance last week. The upper band of this zone should now act as first, minor, support before $1,276/oz and $1,266/oz come into play. To the upside, 61.8% Fibonacci retracement at $1,287/oz is the first target for bullish traders followed shortly after by $1,289/oz. The CCI indicator shows gold mid-market, neither overbought or oversold.
