18.08.2014 - Technical view on commodity futures

The price of gold after a long consolidation near the level of 1310, has fallen sharply and now is moving near the psychologically important mark of 1300. Further decrease is limited by the levels of support at 1290 and 1278. In the case of the resumption of growth, a signal to open positions will be fixing the price above 1320. We maintain our positive medium-term outlook for gold but recommend to wait for a signal to buy.

Nearest resistance levels: 1320, 1330, 1340, 1350, 1365

Nearest support levels: 1300, 1290, 1278, 1265, 1252, 1244
