20120911 1319 Gold Daily Chart Study.

CME Gold Market Recap :
The gold market ended up posting moderate losses during Monday's session, but only gave back a small portion of Friday's huge gains. Expectations that the Federal Reserve will start fresh quantitative easing measures at this week's FOMC meeting played a large role in keeping gold prices in close proximity to their recent highs. Reports of labor unrest in the South African mining industry were also seen as a positive factor for the gold market early this week. However, lukewarm Chinese economic data over the weekend ended up eroding risk sentiment for gold and other physical commodity markets.
