    "Gold was choppy following the U.S. FOMC minutes that did not give a clear indication of whether or not the Fed is poised to raise interest rates this year."

    Pair's Outlook
    From Tuesday till Thursday the precious metal was unable to penetrate the monthly R1 at 1,147. This resistance is strengthened by the 50% Fibonacci retracement of the May-July 2015 downtrend at 1,151. Following a bullish bounce back from yesterday's lows around 1,138, we expect the bullion to continue attacking the mentioned monthly resistance line. A rise above 1,151 would allow for a climb up to 1,155 in the near-term and 1,170 during the next trading week. On the other hand, any losses are likely to be limited by a powerful demand at 1,133/30.  

    Traders' Sentiment
    This week the share of SWFX bullish open positions has remained largely stable, while yesterday their portion was fully unchanged at 53%.
