Gold (daily chart) has stalled its continued decline right above key support around the 1265-70 price region. The drop to last Friday’s low at 1269 established a 33-month low for the precious metal, extending the substantial bearish trend that has been in place since the October 2012 highs near 1800. Last week’s dramatic plunge broke down below an inverted pennant pattern which foreshadowed the continued bearishness in gold. That drop extended into a swift breakdown below the previous 1321 low that was established in mid-April. With gold now hovering above the noted 1265 support area, the price is at a critical juncture. From a bearish trend perspective, a breakdown below 1265 would confirm a downtrend continuation with a potential downside support objective around 1160. Intermediate resistance now resides around 1320 previous support.
