The price of gold is consolidated near the level of 1200 and will likely continue such a movement in the near future. After a long consolidation, we forecast a strong price movement. Signal for opening long positions will be fixing the price above the level of 1220. On the other hand, fixing the quotations below 1180, will be the basis for the continuation of a downward movement with the objectives near 1150. Our medium-term outlook remains positive, but we expect a confirmation of the signal to open new positions.
Nearest resistance levels are 1220, 1244, 1256, 1280, 1300, 1330
Nearest support levels: 1200, 1190, 1180, 1150, 1140, 1100
