  • Get the latest analysis on Gold prices with our Q3 Gold Trading Guide.

Gold prices continue to consolidate, despite breaking out from a $20 range between $1,355.00 and $1,335.00 last week. Prices are now heading towards the next value of daily support at $1,310.71. This price represents the July 2016 swing low in gold, and if the commodity stays above this value it would suggest that gold prices may be trading in a descending triangle. Technically, from this point the price of gold may bounce back towards resistance near $1,350.00 or continue to trade lower beneath triangle support.

Gold Price Forecast: Prices Decline to Next Support

Traders watching for a bullish reversal in price, back towards triangle resistance, should continue to monitor the R4 Camarilla pivot found at $1,333.21. If the price of Gold trades above this point of intraday resistance it opens up the metal to extend its gains on an intraday breakout. Currently price action is trading at today’s central pivot $1,320.01. If the price of Gold declines, traders may first look for support near today’s S3 pivot at $1,313.41. A breakout below this value would be significant as it exposes the triangle line of support mentioned above, followed by the S4 pivot at $1,306.81.
