Trading Range

As gold broke through what many traders consider a resistance level at $1750, we would need to see gold hold this level on it’s way back to $1800 and beyond. If gold can break through and hold the $1800 (after 2 previous failed attempts in the last month) then we are back on track towards the ever elusive $2000 mark.

Right now the big unknown continues to be Europe and how they work the debt crisis out. Unless the EU can continue to europe greece debt crisis gold commodity investor bug trade futuresshow that they are making progress working through the current debt situation, gold is more likely to drop back down to the near term support level of $1650 – $1700 that we’ve seen for the last two months.

Pivot Point

Tomorrow will likely be a pivot point, sending gold up towards the $1800 range or pushing it back down to $1700 and below. This market has been very painful over the last few months and investors are still looking for profits where ever they can find them.

Let’s see what tomorrow brings… hold on.
