1/29/2010 - GOLD - Recent bearish price action on spot gold, a daily chart of which is shown, has descended all the way down to key support around the 1070 price region, forming a tentative double bottom matching the late December low. In the process, price has also reached down to an important uptrend support line that has defined the gold uptrend for at least well over a year. At the current critical support juncture, gold continues to display a marked bearish bias that threatens to change, or at least interrupt, the longstanding uptrend. In the event of any significant breakdown below the uptrend support line and the noted 1070 support, a key downside support target resides in the 1025 price region.
