Gold futures are trading higher shortly before the close on Friday. The market is being supported by a weaker U.S. Dollar, concerns over slowing economic growth and volatile price swings in the U.S. equity markets. Earlier in the session, the market poked through its July 9 top at $1284.10, but found resistance as it approached Fibonacci resistance.

At 2116 GMT, February Comex gold is trading $1282.90, up $1.80 or +0.14%.

Daily Swing Chart Technical Forecast into Close

Based on the current price at $1282.90, gold is currently in a position to make a run at today’s high at $1284.70, followed by the major 50% level at $1285.70. With the stock market finishing mixed, investors may take a shot at a new high at the close.

A lower close will produce a daily closing price reversal top. This will also indicate the selling is greater than the buying at current price levels. This chart pattern won’t change the trend, but it could lead to the start of a 2 to 3 day correction.
