Daily Swing Chart Technical Forecast

Based on the current price at $1300.50 and the earlier price action, the direction of the August Comex Gold market today is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the Fibonacci level at $1300.60.

A sustained move over $1300.60 will indicate the presence of buyers. If this move generates enough upside momentum, we could see a further rally into the minor top at $1307.80, followed by the short-term 50% level at $1309.60.

A sustained move under $1300.60 will signal the presence of sellers. This could lead to a test of the minor bottom at $1296.00. This is followed by $1293.10 and $1292.00.

The sideways price action over the past three weeks suggests investor indecision and impending volatility. Short-term, watch the price action and read the order flow at $1300.60. Longer-term traders should do the same on a test of $1315.60. The market needs to overcome this level to turn gold bullish.
