Gold tests resistance as the dollar falls

Ten-year Treasury Note yields are testing support at 1.85% after consolidating below 2.00% for 2 weeks. 13-Week Twiggs Momentum below zero continues to indicate a primary down-trend. Failure of support at 1.85% would test primary support at 1.65%.

10-Year Treasury Yields

Correction on the Dollar Index has lasted 3 weeks but continues to respect the first line of support at 95.50. Rising 13-week Twiggs Momentum also continues to indicate a strong (primary) up-trend. Recovery above 100 is likely and would offer a target of 110*.

* Target calculation: 100 + ( 100 – 90 ) = 110

Gold is testing resistance at $1200/ounce on the back of softer interest rates and a weak dollar. Breakout above $1220/ounce would indicate a rally to $1300. But 13-week Twiggs Momentum below zero continues to indicate a primary down-trend. Respect of $1300, or reversal below $1180 would suggest another test of primary support at $1140/$1150.
