Salient to Investors:
Gold has been below its 200-day moving average since February 11, the longest streak since the 8 months to March 2001.
Last week, holdings in gold ETPs fell 25 percent since peaking in December to the lowest in more than 3 years.
Clive Lambert at FuturesTechs.com said gold is in a downtrend in the short and medium term, with resistance in the $1,285 to $1,300 area and support in the $1,120 area. Lambert said a break below $1,120 means a potential further drop to $890.
Barclays says resistance is in the $1,320 to $1,340 area and a climb above $1,522 would be needed to provide a more bullish outlook, while a drop below $1,180 could push prices toward $1,150 to $1,100.
