Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Talking Points:

Gold continues to tread water in a well-defined range near the $1100/oz figure as prices await a new directional catalyst. Near-term support is at 1078.10, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 1058.48. Alternatively, a push above the 23.6% Fib retracement at 1102.94 clears the way for a test of the 38.2% threshold at 1122.52.
