Gold’s unsuccessful attempt on the $1240 resistance precedes a slide towards $1185

The crucial $1240 resistance capped gold’s attempts on the upside; although a second test is possible, we consider the current market levels good for the initiation of fresh short positions.

The crucial $1240 resistance capped gold's attempts on the upside; we consider the current market levels good for the initiation of fresh short positions.

In the last couple of days, gold succeeded in regaining some lost ground. Today it tested $1240, and the attempt could already be considered a failure on the evidence provided by the 1-hour chart. We are waiting for a confirmation on the 4-hour frame, so that our judgement can be more precise.

The $1240 level should provide solid resistance and reinstate bullion’s long-term downtrend. Short-sellers currently have the chance to open their positions somewhere in the $1240-$1235 area. Profits should be taken around the $1185 zone. Given the significance of this resistance, it would be smart to book profits a bit earlier. Stop losses need to be placed above $1248.
