Commenting on the bearish market trend, analyst Jim Wyckoff told Kitco News, "Technically, October gold futures prices hit a four-week high today. The gold futures bears still have the slight overall near-term technical advantage. However, a fledgling price uptrend is in place on the daily bar chart to suggest more upside in the near term. Bulls' next upside price objective is to produce a close above solid resistance at $1,850.00. Bears' next near-term downside price objective is pushing futures prices below solid technical support at $1,750.00. First resistance is seen at today's high of $1,806.00 and then at 1,825.00."
