Gold: Fading Near The Top of The Declining Channel
Gold has faded near the resistance at 1316 (see also the declining channel). Hourly supports stand at 1289 and 1278. An hourly resistance now lies at 1309 (14/05/2014 high).
Longer term, we are sceptical that the horizontal range between the strong support at 1181 (28/06/2013 low) and the major resistance at 1434 (30/08/2013 high) is a long-term bullish reversal pattern. As a result, a decline towards the low of this range is eventually favoured.
