Gold back to its recent highs...and beyond?

Technical Analyst / FuturesTechs
United Kingdom
Price target: 1365
Market price: 1332

Gold has big resistance at 1365-90. We know that. It's been pretty well flagged by yours truly on here. We got up to here a few weeks back and failed again.

We appear to have bottomed for this pullback though, during last week's turmoil in the markets! We got down to 1308, which has been a pivotal level in the last few months. We also had a Fibonacci support at 1317 and although we did see dips through here they were always followed by swift recoveries.

So I want to be long, as it looks like we're going to head back to 1365.

As you can see from our monthly chart a move above 1365-90 would give a BIG buy signal so I would want to hold on to some longs if/when this breaks as we can set "bigger pciture" targets at 1484, maybe even 1588, although these would take a while to reach!

Management and risk description

We are risking $10 to make $37 even if we only hit the first target. When we get above 1350 we will move the stop to entry.


Entry: Buy at 1332 and a dip to 1324

Stop: Below 1318

Targets: 1365 for a short-term trade. See above for bigger picture targets for a longer-term trade.

Time horizon: 2 weeks to reach 1365.

No. covered some of the long, but still want to hold on to some. If and when 1365-90 gets seen off we will fly higher... and this is my favoured skew....
