Gold holds off the June low at $1670.49
“Gold has again tested and held over the $1670.49 June low and appears to have based near-term at $1677.73/$1676.80.”
“Further upside attempts look likely and attention has reverted to the $1765.24/61 November low and May 2020 high. Only a close above here will negate downside pressure and convince us there is scope to recover to the $1816.21 23rd February high and the 200-day ma at $1859.50.”
“Below $1670 lies the 50 % retracement of the 2018-2021 advance at $1616.18. Below it the September 2019 high can be seen at $1557.29.”
