Chart Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT
Commodity Analysis: I wrote yesterday that “weakness off of the 61.8% retracement demands respect but a drop below 11/20 high (1735.51) would create overlap and suggest that an important top is in place.” Gold didn’t just create overlap…the price nearly broke the 11/15 low. Viewed in light of the 3 wave advance from 1672.50, the trend is lower.
Commodity Trading Strategy: Given market conditions lately, there is nothing at this point that would surprise me but a move back to former resistance at 1735 would present a short opportunity against the 11/23 high.
LEVELS: 1673 1684 1705 1735 1745 1754
