Gold Technical Analysis: Bullish flag breakout support prospects for further near-term up-move


   •  The commodity's intraday corrective slide, alongside a descending trend-channel, stalled near the $1233 region, with bulls now eyeing a follow-through up-move beyond $1240 level.

   •  The mentioned channel, against the backdrop of the recent rally since late-Nov., constituted towards the formation of a bullish continuation - flag chart pattern on the 1-hourly chart.

   •  The fact that the precious metal is holding above intraday important moving averages - 50, 100 & 200-hour SMAs, the set-up support prospects for further near-term up-move. 

   •  Meanwhile, technical indicators have been losing traction but are yet to fall into bearish territory and considering the lag effect, seem unlikely to dampen the constructive outlook.
