Our downside target for the near-term is 1156.60, a ‘midpoint’ Hidden Pivot that comes from the weekly chart.
April Gold had a chance to rally out of the hole this week from a bouncy-looking pivot at 1195.40. Instead, the futures popped for a few measly points before falling back to the support. This is pretty feeble price action, especially considering the rally had round-number support at 1200.00 going for it as well. Under the circumstances, we should expect the futures to continue lower, eventually turning 1200.00 into resistance.
I’d return reluctantly to the bullish case, at least for the near term, if this vehicle were to leap above 1214.50 in the next day or two. That would generate a bullish impulse leg on the hourly chart — one that presumably would be tradable. Click here for two weeks' free access to Rick's Picks
