The price of gold continued to fall along the upper boundary of the descending channel and currently is consolidating above the support level at 1080. The breaking of this level will become a signal for opening short positions with the first targets at 1060 and 1050. On the other hand, long positions should be opened only in case of breaking through the upper boundary of the channel and fixing the price above 1110. Our short-term outlook is negative.
