Looking at the hourly chart I am looking to take a short position in gold above 1,275. The emerging market issues have pushed gold higher and it has formed a bearish chart pattern. I think we will see a counter-trend correction which could take us back down to support levels between 1,250 and 1,260. A breakdown from here can lead to a test of 1,190.
I would recommend a comprehensive free forex trading course for all new traders in order to better your knowledge which will help you create a better strategy. You can find one good one over at Paxforex.
