Gold targeting break above 1265

Daily Forecast - 19 May 2017

Gold Spot

Gold held quite strong resistance at 1264/65 & initially bottomed just over a point below support at 1252/51 but only bounced 4 points. Eventually we bottomed a fraction above the next target & support at 1245/44 for a bounce to the 1251/52 resistance. This is only minor so further gains if seen target 1255/56, 1258/59 & perhaps as far as strong resistance at 1264/65. We should struggle here but a break higher this time is certainly possible. A weekly close above would be a buy signal for the start of next week targeting 1271/72 & 1277/78 before mega important 4.5 year trend line resistance at 1280/83.

The best support for today at 1245/44 but longs need stops below 1240. A break lower targets the next buying opportunity at 1234/32. Try longs with stops below 1228.
