17.02.2015 - Technical view on commodity futures
The price of gold after a slight growth and consolidation near the level of 1230, resumed its decline and approached the level of 1220. In case of overcoming this mark, quotes will continue to decline with the target at 1200 and 1180 near which we recommend to accumulate long positions. In case of resumption of growth, a buy signal will be breaking through the upper boundary of the descending channel and consolidation above the level of 1244. We maintain our positive outlook for the medium-term, but expect further price decline in the near future.
