Analysis: Almost Time to Sell Gold Again?

Analysis: Almost Time to Sell Gold Again?

2013-05-09 16:47:00
Kristian A. Kerr,

Gold in USD terms has enjoyed a steady recovery over the past few weeks since finding support in mid-April near a Fibonacci projection related to the October and March highs in the 1320 area. However, within the context of a broader downtrend the price action of the past few weeks looks only corrective to us and susceptible to at least some sort of re-test of last month’s lows before embarking on a more important bottoming process.

Several medium-term Fibonacci and Gann time cycle relationships point to the latter half of this week and the first part of next week as a potential timeframe for a turn in the metal. Some final strength could be witnessed during this time, but important Gann & Fibonacci resistance in the 1495 to 1510 area is expected to hold. Weakness below the 3rd square root progression of the year-to-date low in the 1430 area would be further evidence that a renewed move lower is underway. On the other hand, a close over 1510 paves the way for a stronger immediate correction.
