Just over two weeks ago, on June 30, we alerted traders to our view that the rally in gold was stalling. Gold dropped $45 the next day and eventually tested the short-term 38% support at 1185. It does not appear that the correction is over yet and a close below 1194 (August) should signal a drop to the 1130-1160 support zone. If we can hold this support for a week or two, it could set the stage for a resumption of the uptrend. Silver also looks vulnerable with key support in the 1730 area.
