As long as the pair trades above this level, short positions are recommended. It is anticipated however that, during this week, Gold will continue short down to the 1052.64 key level. Thus during this week, traders trading this commodity should look to take profit at the level 1050.64.
By 11th September 2015, gold will have broken below the lower trend line completing the channel, otherwise, long positions are recommended should it move upwards and close above the resistance trend line. As a caution, before buying gold above this resistance trend line, see to it that, gold is clearly bouncing above it. If the latter is the case, then we expect gold to move further ahead and bounce off from 38.2% fib level. Otherwise it may break downwards and even lower to 1130.53.
Traders trading Gold should observe closely the US dollar index. Gold and the US dollar Index have had a moderate positive correlation for the past week, this correlation is expected to continue. Thus, before you buy Gold at above the Resistance trend line, see to it that, at the same time gold is giving a buy signal above this level, US dollar index is also giving a buy signal.
