Scotiabank Daily Gold Price Analysis for September 3, 2013


The Canadian Scotiabank issued its daily gold and silver market watch for September 3. It highlighted the gold market movement and gave a technical commentary for gold and silver.

Gold rallied after the Labor Day weekend on rising possibility of a military aggressive action on Syria drove some investors to buy gold as a safe heaven. The yellow metal opened the trading session $1,395 then dipped early to a low of $1,391.75. Gold advanced for the rest of the session close at the day’s high of $1,413.

On the technical side, gold closed at $1,413 after the past 3 sessions making weak closes. Tuesday’s support was at the previous day’s low of $1,373.

Therefore, the next big area of resistance is from $1,447 and $1,463. The bank is still bullish on gold as long as gold holds above $1,348.
