In past two months, Gold hasn't showed any clear direction. The price moved in a 50-dollar range trading between 1180 and 1230 dollars for one troy ounce of gold. As no clear direction has been established, the best strategy is to use Oscillators to capitalize on the oversold/overbought market conditions.
While precious metal broke above the ascending channel, it rejected the resistance level R3 (1231.36), which is 23.6% Fibonacci level applied to the channel breakout point. Currently, the price dropped back to the 61.8% Fibs supporting S1 (1204.92), which is rejected. At the same time, DeMarker Oscilator crossed the oversold line from above suggested short-term growth.
If gold continues to trade above the S2 (that is the lowest point below S1 support), consider buying the yellow metal near S1 (1204.92) targeting either R1 (1213) or R2 (1221) resistance levels. Only a daily close below S2 could send the price lower to test S3 (1195).
Support: 1204.92, 1201.36, 1194.79
Resistance: 1213.04, 1221.23, 1231.36
