Golds breaks trendline, yet key support remains
Gold has seen a sharp move lower this week, following a break below both the 76.4% retracement and trendline support. This brings about a significant risk that second half could be a bit of a shocker for gold prices.
For a wider bearish outlook to come into play, we would need to see a break below the critical $1214 level. That would form the first weekly lower low of 2017. For now, we have seen a little rebound, yet the downtrend remains intact. Considering the proximity to that crucial $1214 support level, it could be prudent to await a break below for further shorts to be considered. Until then, we could see some further gains as the market takes a breather.
