Key quotes

“Gold has recently tested and rebounded strongly from the 1760/1765.61 May high and 50% retracement. We view the market as having based here and note that this support is further reinforced by the 1747.50 55-week ma.” 

“Rallies are currently capped by the 20-day ma at 1875.30 and will find initial resistance at the 55-day ma at 1908.68. This is likely to act as the barrier to the mid-September high at 1973.8 and the 78.6% retracement at 2025 which guards the target band of 2070/2088. This is a combination of Fibonacci extensions and Elliott wave counts.”

“Below the 55-week ma at 1747.50(not favoured) would introduce scope to the 1670.49 June low.”
