01.09.2014 - Technical view on commodity futures
The price of gold consolidates above the level of 1285 after it failed to gain a foothold above the level of 1290 and broke the lower boundary of the local downward channel. Reduction is possible to the levels of 1275-1278. For continued growth the price needs to gain a foothold above 1290. We expect continued upward movement with the immediate goal of about 1320 and maintain a medium-term positive outlook.
Nearest resistance levels: 1290, 1300, 1320, 1330, 1340, 1350, 1365
Nearest support levels: 1278, 1265, 1252, 1244
