Inflationary pressures are low, Yuan depreciation is gradual, Europe looks like it will ‘muddle through’ on Brexit and Hillary Clinton is favorite to win the November election. No sudden shocks to spark a rally in Gold, with the spot metal consolidating in a narrow range above $1300/ounce. But life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get. (Forrest Gump – 1994).
* Target calculation: 1375 + ( 1375 – 1300 ) = 1450
Short retracement indicates that support at $1300/ounce is strong. Breakout above $1350 would signal a fresh advance, with a target of $1450*. Breach of support is less likely but would warn of a test of primary support at $1200/ounce.
