Gold Price Analysis: The Bullish Pattern Poised for $1375 Retest

Gold Price Analysis: The Bullish Pattern Poised for $1375 Retest

Gold prices have been correcting lower for the past couple days and have reached a zone of interest. The Elliott Wave model we are following hints at support forming between now and $1310. The next move higher then becomes an ending wave.

It appears as though prices are correcting lower in a small degree wave iv. Typically wave iv in an impulse corrects towards the 38% retracement level of wave iii. If my wave labelling is correct, then gold prices may find support near $1317 and possibly down towards $1310. If price corrects below $1274, then the wave count is incorrect and we will reassess what the other models are indicating.

If gold prices are supported in this $1310-$1320 price zone, then we will look for a break higher that tests $1375.

$1375 is a big level for multiple reasons. There is a wave relationship that appears near there. Wave v is .382 the length of waves i-iii. In addition, the July 2016 high circles around in the same price zone. Therefore, we expect a battle between the bulls and bears to occur near this zone. We will likely see a reaction lower, but we cannot rule out a break higher eventually.

The IG Client sentiment reading for gold is at +1.79. The number of traders net long gold have decreased since the beginning of July. This could be a subtle clue for bullish traders as the sentiment reading has been dropping from even more extreme levels. Follow live trader positioning in gold.

Bottom line, look for gold prices to pivot higher near these current levels with a target near $1375. Below $1274 and we will need to reassess the Elliott Wave count.
