Gold drifting lower from major resistance
Gold managed to break into a near 12-month high yesterday, following yet another nuclear test from North Korea. However, with the price having only fleetingly traded above the major $1337, November 2017 high, the weakness we are currently seeing provides us with a potential short-term period of downside. The $1332 area gives us a clear support level that would lead to a period of weakness. With the price currently moving below that level, there is a good chance we could see further downside from here.
However, it seems risky to short gold of late, given the potential for a North Korea fueled flight to safety at any moment. As such, further short-term downside would be perceived as a buying opportunity rather than something to sell into.
