A firm U.S. Dollar is pressuring gold futures on Wednesday. The market is trading lower, but inside yesterday’s range, suggesting investor indecision and impending volatility. It seems like investors are trying to figure out the latest round of potential tariffs on China by the United States. Furthermore, U.S. Treasury yields are lower today due to safe-haven buyers. Gold traders are trying to decide whether to buy because of falling yields and lower demand for risky assets, or sell because of the firmer U.S. Dollar.

At 1134 GMT, August Comex Gold futures are trading $1250.70, down $4.60 or -0.37%.

Daily Technical Forecast

Based on the early price action and the current price at $1250.70, the direction of the August Comex Gold futures contract the rest of the day is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the short-term uptrending Gann angle at $1248.80 and the short-term pivot at $1252.90.

A sustained move under $1248.80 will indicate the selling is getting stronger. This could trigger an acceleration into the next uptrending Gann angle at $1243.80. This is the last potential support angle before the $1238.80 main bottom. If this price fails, losses could extend into the July 7, 2017 main bottom at $1230.70.

Holding $1248.80 will indicate buyers are coming in to stop the price slide. However, overcoming $1252.90 will indicate the buying is getting stronger. This could drive gold into $1256.60, followed by an uptrending Gann angle at $1258.80.

Crossing to the strong side of the angle at $1258.80 could trigger an acceleration into the minor top at $1266.90. This is also the trigger point for a potential surge into a resistance cluster at $1276.10 to $1277.00.
