Gold 1 OZ (XAU=X) solid technical support at $1,465.00
Gold prices are modestly up on an upside correction after suffering sharp losses Tuesday. Rallying world stock markets that saw the U.S. indexes score record highs on Tuesday continue to squelch buying interest in the safe-haven metals. December gold futures were last up $4.60 an ounce at 1,488.30. December Comex silver prices were last down $0.058 at $17.51 an ounce.
Technically, the gold bulls still have the overall near-term technical advantage but are fading. Bulls’ next upside price objective is to produce a close in December futures above solid resistance at $1,525.00.
Bears’ next near-term downside price breakout objective is pushing December futures prices below solid technical support at the October low of $1,465.00. First resistance is seen at $1,500.00 and then at Tuesday’s high of $1,511.90. First support is seen at this week’s low of $1,480.70 and then at $1,478.00.
