Focus Chart of the Day: GOLD

Price & Time: Key Period Coming Up For Gold

Gold seems to be marking time until the next important cyclical turn window around the end of August/start of September. The confluence of several important long-term cyclical relationships at the start of the summer suggests that the low around 1240 is potentially significant, although we would be less than honest if we did not admit that the lack of progress on the upside since then has us seriously doubting this view. A low early next month followed by strength over 1321 is needed to confirm the broader positive view and set the stage for a more meaningful rally over the remainder of the year. Interim support is eyed around 1277 and 1262, but weakness under 1240 is really needed to turn the cyclical outlook overtly negative.
