Spot gold may test resistance at $1,291

SINGAPORE: Spot gold may test a resistance at $1,291 per ounce, a break above which could lead to a gain to the next resistance at $1,299.
These resistances are identified as the 50 percent and the 38.2 percent projection levels of a downward wave C from $1,324.33. A falling trendline suggests a further gain to $1,291.
The pattern from the April 23 low of $1,265 looks like a flat, which consists of three waves that are roughly equal. Under this scenario, the gain may be limited to $1,291.
The pattern may turn out to be a double-bottom, which will be confirmed when gold breaks $1,291. It indicates a target around $1,310. A fall below $1,277.65 would signal a continuation of the wave C towards $1,267.
On the daily chart, gold has cleared a resistance at $1,283. It may rise towards $1,307, the 23.6 percent retracement of the uptrend from $1,180.34 to $1,346.73. Based on this analysis, a double-bottom could be forming around $1,264.
