Gold Set To Break Up?

Technicals | Mar 21 2017

By Michael Gable 

The Australian market is still going nowhere but we have found a few stocks that look interesting from a trading perspective; Nufarm (NUF) and Nine Entertainment (NEC). It is interesting to see NEC looking like it is about to break higher – it was only a couple of weeks ago that we noticed a similar thing with Fairfax Media (FXJ). Is there some behind the scenes interest building in the media space? Spot Gold is looking positive again down here and we include a chart of that.

USD gold


Our last note on gold was on 10 January. We noted the bounce off support and expected it to rally higher with resistance coming in near US$1220/t and then US$1250/t. It managed to exceed that slightly a few weeks ago before easing back. Gold now looks to be on the move again and if it can take out this year's high just above US$1250/t, then it should go on to retest last year's. If gold can do that and maintain its momentum here, then we could potentially see it head towards major resistance around US$1450/t – US$1480/t.
