    • Gold The uptrend has been given new life with yesterday’s bounce, which has seen the price push to $1840 for the first time in a month. This run of higher highs and higher lows continues to support a more bullish view, putting the November highs near $1860 into view. Tuesday’s low at $1806 would need to be breached to the downside to provide a short-term negative outlook, as this would end the run of higher lows witnessed over the past seven weeks.

Nonetheless the overall bullish view remains in place, and the 2011 highs above $100 per barrel are now in sight. Near-term support comes into play around $84, the October and November highs, and then below this in the region around $79. Source: ProRealTime
    • Note: There will be a maximum of 3 time units to the downside from the high before the next rally.
