Gold Price: Long-Term Down Trend Resuming?

Gold Price: Long-Term Down Trend Resuming?

Ilya Spivak,

Talking Points:

  • Gold Down Trend May Be Resuming After Break of Trend Line
  • Break of Support at 1108.35 Exposes the Next Barrier at 1089.35

Gold prices may be in the process of resuming their long-term down trend after breaking trend line support in play since mid-August. The metal launched a recovery having dropped to a five-year low in July but sellers moved to reclaim momentum below the $1200/oz figure.

From here, the next level of near-term support comes in at 1108.35, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion. A daily close below this boundary opens the door for a test of the 50% level at 1089.35. Alternatively, a move back above trend line support-turned-resistance at 1121.62 clears the way for a challenge of the 23.6% Fib at 1131.86.
