MKS: Gold Support Around $1,210-$1,220 Should Restrict Declines

Kitco News

Spot gold remains above chart support that starts around $1,220 an ounce, says MKS (Switzerland) S.A. “Trade concerns between the U.S. and China remain elevated and the ongoing U.S.-Saudi tensions are likely to continue to underpin a bid tone for bullion over the near term,” MKS says. “Supportive price action around $1,210-$1,220 should restrict declines amid current global political uncertainty, while a test through $1,230-$1,235 will likely squeeze further shorts out of the market and see gold toward $1,250.” Just before 8:30 a.m. EDT, spot gold was down $3.40 to $1,223.10 an ounce.
