  • Confirmation of a top with a range violation on 11/28/12 @ 1729.90. Confirmation of a top with a close violation on 11/28/12 @ 1718.80. Downside Target = 1707.20 – 1694.70
  • February Gold was unable to close above Wednesday’s high as last night’s report projected but it did find plenty of support below $1,690 and rallied to close back above $1,700 just off the session’s highs.
  • If gold can sustain this kind of bullish price action heading into next week, the upside target of $1,743 listed in Wednesday evening’s report should trade within the next 4 sessions as gold confirms a ST trend reversing higher low.

  • Projected Weekly Range: 42.30
  • Projected Monthly Range: 94.70

  • Bearish ERVB generated on Thursday.
  • The December Euro FX dropped significantly lower on the ECB decision to leave rates unchanged and painted a grim outlook for a possible shrinking Eurozone economy.
  • The downside target that was mentioned in last night’s report of 1.2938 that was supposed to take 4-6 days to trade was nearly fulfilled in Thursday’s session alone, highlighting that the market was oversold on Thursday and should see a pop back higher on Friday with a positive US employment report.
