Gold Technical Analysis and Near-Term Outlook
Gold fulfilled the $1687 target at today’s $1687.6 low as called for in yesterday’s daily update. This is a confluent wave projection and a potential stalling point. However, any move up will most likely prove to be another short-lived correction. This is because the primary wave down from $2107.6 still favors a decline to its $1631 equal to (1.00) target. The connection to $1631 is made through $1681, $1668, and $1653. Once $1631 is met, a solid test of resistance is anticipated before gold falls any lower.
A few daily momentum oscillators are now oversold and there are bullish daily divergence setups. However, there are no patterns or confirmed signals that call for a significant reversal. As stated, as gold works its way toward $1631 any move up should be a simple correction. For now, $1729 is expected to hold and $1747 is key for the near-term. Settling above $1747 will call for a more significant test of resistance before gold falls to fulfill the $1631 objective.
