In the short term, Gold prices may be seen rising off of the daily lows at $1,250.09. Referencing the 10 minute graph below, the Grid Sight Index (GSI) has identified this morning’s move as a short term uptrend as prices continue to bounce from support. After reviewing 31,495,859 pricing points, GSI has also indicated that price action has continued to advance by $2.20 in 52% of the reported 67 matching historical events. With a little over half of the historical matches showing an increase in price, today’s first bullish price distribution is found at $1,259.20. If prices move through this value, it may open the commodity up to test the daily value of resistance previously mentioned at $1,265.34.

Alternatively, GSI has indicated that prices have declined by $2.60 or more in 57% of the identified historical instances. With both bearish and bullish historical values reading near similar values, this is typically indicative of a consolidating market. Traders should note however, that today’s first bearish distribution is found at a price of $1,254.40. If Gold prices drop below this point, it may open the commodity up to challenge the current daily low as well as longer term support at $1,241.27.
