Gold could not close below the 78 percent retracement of the rise from $2308.7 at $2346 after testing and holding the $2336 XC (2.764) projection of the prior primary wave down from $2477. Prices have risen for the past couple of days and have broken higher out of a period of consolidation. Today’s close above the 38 percent retracement of the decline from $2477 and the $2375.5 confirmation point of a $2335 double bottom warns that the move down might be complete. This move up also suggests that gold will fail to confirm a double top around $2474 by closing below the $2308.7 swing low.

Tomorrow, look for a test of $2408, a close above which will call for $2420. The $2420 objective is split between the $2417 target of the double bottom and the 62 percent retracement of the decline from $2477 at $2423. Settling above $2420 would provide more evidence that the move down is complete. This would also call for a test of the $2439 smaller than (0.618) target of the wave up from $2308.7 in the coming days.

Should prices turn lower again and take out $2373 look for a test of $2359 and possibly another attempt to take out $2346. Settling below $2346 would shift near-term odds back in favor of gold falling to $2327 and eventually $2309.
