Technicians See Gold Melting Down to $1,200 an Ounce: StockTwits.com

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The gold charts are not glittering for traders. In fact, most technicians on StockTwits.com say the shine is off the yellow metal and prices will fall further.

Traders watching the SPDR Gold ETF  (GLD) see the price-per-ounce dropping another $10 or more in the near future now that gold has broken through a key support level of $1,300-per-ounce. Gold traded at $1,267.10-per-ounce this afternoon.

Fundamental traders also see few positives on the horizon for gold. Better-than-anticipated U.S. economic data has decreased demand for the safe-haven asset. The Conference Board said today that U.S. consumer confidence improved in May. The index tracking consumers' feelings about the economy, personal consumption, and future income expectations rose to 83 from 81.7. It had dropped in April. U.S. factory orders for durable goods also unexpectedly rose in April. Economists had expected a drop.
