What’s next for gold prices? Commerzbank analyst explained
Karen Jones, analyst of the famous German bank Commerzbank, shared her predictions for gold in a recently published note. Cryptocoin. com
As we have reported as , what kind of move will gold make now, which has made its investors happy with its rise over the past week? According to Jones, the previous resistance levels at $1,832 and $1,834 in the precious metal are now acting as support. The analyst also uses the following statements:
The close above $1,835 appears to be in key longer-term status. In the long term, the May 2021 peak, the 61.8% retracement level, and the 2011 high of $1,917 and $1,922 are targeted. This will act as the breakout point to the November 2020 high of $1,965 and the 78.6 percent retracement level to $1,989. This is the final defense for the August 2020 peak at $2,072.
Finally, the analyst points out that we should not forget that Tuesday’s price action is an important day return and we may see some slippage/consolidation in the near term. “Lower lows should find initial support at $1,834 and will likely be held at $1,791 by the 200-day moving average,” Jones concludes.
