Gold which always react in opposite to US dollar was showing an uptrend and was trading within an ascending triangle. According to the trend the commodity should break above the resistance at 1309.23. But seems like Gold will breakout or break down after the release of Consumer Confidence data releasing today at 10:00 AM EDT. If the data beats the expectations, Gold will reverse the uptrend to downtrend breaking the rising support trend line. Nearest support it may find is at 1294.77 if it declines. However if it breaks above the resistance at 1309.23 the next nearest resistance it should find at 1314.41.
