Following last month's sharp fall in gold
prices, the market has entered a bullish
corrective phase and is rising back up to a previous support level
at $1,147 that was tested on 8 July. There is currently a trend line
resistance at around $1,151-53 which could provide for a decent short opportunity pretty soon. A stop above $1,165 (to be determined according to overall risk one's willing to take) would offer a risk/reward ratio above 1:3 if one was to target levels below $1,100, which wouldn't be absurd given the overall bearish trend
