Gold Analysis: finds support below 1,250

"The gold rally was overdone and there was a correction on Thursday.”

– Brian Lan, GoldSilver Central (based on Reuters)

  • Pair’s Outlook
    On Friday morning the yellow metal’s price was regaining some of the losses, which were suffered during Thursday’s trading session. During that day the bullion retreated down to the levels below the 1,250 mark, where the 20, 55 and 200-day SMAs are located at. The combined support of these levels of significance managed to stop the fall of the commodiy price. Afterwards a rebound began, which has passed the resistance of the 50.00% Fibonacci retracement level at 1,249.16 level. Due to these factors combined it can be assumed that the bullion will attempt to reach the weekly R3 at 1,261.72 once more.

  • Traders’ Sentiment
    Traders are neutral in regard to the metal. However, 70% of pending commands are to buy the bullion.
