Gold Technical Analysis: Probing Resistance Above 1100

By Ilya Spivak, Currency Strategist

Talking Points:

- Support: 1084.49, 1071.28, 1056.18
- Resistance: 1109.28, 1132.79, 1151.79

Gold continues to tread water in familiarterritory near the $1100/oz figure as prices await a new directional catalyst. Near-term resistance is at 1109.28, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break above that on a daily closing basis exposing the 38.2% level at 1132.79. Alternatively, a move below trend line support at 1084.49 clears the way for a test of the July 20 low at 1071.28.

Key upcoming event risk:

14 AUG 2015, 12:30 GMT – US PPI (YoY) (JUL) – Expected: -0.9%, Prev: -0.7%
