Gold fell $100 in November, historically one of the strongest months of the year. The new month has started in the same vein and we expect lower prices into the end of the year from here, particularly as equities usually perform strongly in December, oil remains very weak and the dollar is recovering well from last month's sell off.
The economic calendar is quite full this week, with ISM and PMI released in the first half of the week and the Beige Book and various employment data released in the latter half of the week.
Support can be found at 1235-1238, 1225, 1220, 1207-1210, 1200 and 1180. A break of 1180 would have serious bearish implications for gold and suggest a decline to 1000-1050 in the short term.
Resistance can be found at 1245, 1250, 1260, 1270, 1277-1280 and 1291-1295. A break above 1295 would suggest an end to the down trend, though it would take a break of 1360 to confirm this was the case.
