Technical Analysis


Global investors may have found the slowing of the Chinese economy worrisome. That may be one of the factors that contributed to the rise of the gold price.

Currently, it’s moving back up after its recent drop to $1,800. As long as it confidently crosses this important level upwards, reaching the resistance of $1,830 should be a matter of the coming days.


AMD’s wedge chart formation suggests it may drop below the support of $103 soon.


Apple’s investors don’t seem to be much impressed by the company’s yearly event. The stock is at the channel’s bottom and may drop below $150.
