Based on the early trade, the direction of the August Comex Gold market the rest of the session is likely to be determined by trader reaction to the downtrending Gann angle at $1272.40 and the uptrending Gann angle at $1270.40.

A sustained move over $1272.40 will indicate the presence of buyers. This could lead to a quick test of today’s intraday high at $1274.40.

Overtaking $1274.40 could trigger an acceleration to the upside with a downtrending Gann angle at $1285.00 the first target. We could see a technical bounce on the first test of this angle. If buyers can over $1285.00 then look for the rally to extend into $1285.30 then the 50% level at $1287.70.

A sustained move under $1270.40 will signal the presence of sellers. This could trigger a labored break with potential support levels lined up at $1268.60, $1266.40, $1264.40 and $1263.40. The latter is the last potential support angle before the $1262.40 main bottom.

Watch the price action and read the order flow at $1274.40 today. Taking out this level with conviction could trigger a $10 to $13 rally.
