CHART VIEW – Gold Futures

CHART VIEW – Gold Futures

Written by Jeff Gilfillan

 

CME COMEX Gold futures failed to breakout of its consolidated strong value range in place since 2013 despite a sustained effort through the 1st and a good part of the second quarter of 2018. This range visible on the monthly continuation chart below spans from roughly 1212 to 1350 in front month gold futures. From a technical perspective this discounts the strength of support at recent 1210 level.

The 2016 high and low on a monthly chart serve as parameters for the current price point range between 1374.90 and 1123.90 in the front month contract. Short-term resistance should start at Dec 2017 low at 1236.50 then long-term 50% level on a continuation chart at 1296.

There is only so much you can analyze in a choppy market range, however, consolidation offers low volatility opportunities in options.
