Gold Technical Analysis: Bulls in control above 1316, targetting 78.6% Fibo in 1332s


  • While above 1316, gold bulls are in control, currently challenging the 61.8% Fibo within the rising wedge formation, with targets set on the 78.6% Fibo. 
  • There is room here for a pullback to challenge the rising wedge's support with stochastics overbought.
  • 1323 ahead of 1332 guards the 2019 highs as being the 19th Feb high of 1345.19.
  • On the downside, 1316 and 1302 are key. A break here will jeopardise the bullish Ichimoku Cloud and leave the outlook neutral with a bearish bias. 
  • 1298 and 1290 guard a run to 1280 as a keen target ahead of 1275 which remains the line in the sand to the downside.
  • A break below here will put the attention back to the towards to 1250, a key confluence area made up of Fibos and prior support and resistance.
