Gold Futures Trading Outlook - Tuesday 10/9
Gold futures (/GC Dec) suffered a second straight daily loss on Monday, backing off from the vaunted $1,800 resistance level. Contracts, however, finished the day well off of intraday lows ($1,768.20) to close at $1,777.60.
As the six-month daily chart below shows, gold futures are currently resting on support dating back to mid-August. Should it hold, it may set up another run at the one year high of $1,804.40 (November of 2011). If prices break the trend line to the downside, however, look for a retest of the nearest support level at $1,740. After that, no support comes into play until $1,720 and then $1,687.
