‘If the (nonfarm payroll) data does come in better than market expectations, it will drag gold prices further.’ – Barnabas Gan, OCBC (based on Reuters)
During the early hours of Thursday’s trading session the yellow metal’s price slipped even further lower, as the price reached below the 1,205 level. However, the bullion managed to find support in a speculative and before the recent moves unconfirmed long term lower trend line of a large scale ascending channel pattern. Due to that reason traders should look at whether a proper rebound occurs, as from the upside there is a strong resistance cluster, which could keep the commodity price lower in the future sessions.
SWFX traders are neutral at the moment, as 50% of open positions are long. Although, 65% of trader set up orders are set to buy the bullion, and such a high level has not been seen for more than two months.
