Prior to the Fed meeting on 17 September, opinions of economists on when to expect the Fed to hike its interest rates are split. Nevertheless, the pressure on prices of precious metals increased in the last two days amid growing US and Asian stock markets and strengthening Dollar. For example, December gold futures on COMEX fell by 40 cents to $1121 per troy ounce.
Today pay attention to the data form the US and to the interest rate decision in Canada.
Support and resistance
The price broke down the level of 1135.00 (EMA50 on the daily chart) and continues falling along the downward channel.
The pair will tend to fall as long as the price remains below the levels of 1149.50, 1162.00, while the breakdown of the level of 1114.50 would allow the pair to fall to year lows at 1085.00. However, the breakout of the level of 1176.00 (EMA200 on the daily chart) can reverse the trend and let the pair grow to 1185.25 (23.6% Fibonacci).
