Talking Points

  • Gold Prices Test Channel Support at $1,340.00
  • A Bounce in the Price of Gold Exposes Resistance Near $1,348.00
  • If you are looking for more commodity trading ideas? check out our Gold Trading Guide

The price of Gold is now trading to new session lows, with prices now pressuring support near $1,340.00. With today’s price action trading lower, this marks the second session Gold prices have declined this week. If prices break below support, it would potentially open Gold up to a further retracement of September’s standing uptrend. Alternatively, if Gold prices bounce here, it suggests that the metal may be trading in a descending price channel. A bounce in price near current levels would suggest that the price of Gold might again rebound towards resistance near $1,348.00.
