Gold Report:

Gold was badly hit yesterday largely in reaction to a rebound in the US dollar and in line with the whole commodities spectrum as funds were liquidating at the end of the month across the board. A weak US consumer confidence has been interpreted as less inflationary triggering a flight to quality, but in the greenback thus hurting gold. Consequently the yellow metal dropped below the short term moving averages settling $10.12 down at $928.85/oz

The short term trend is bearish, the medium term trend is sideways while the long term trend is bullish.
