- Gold bear trend is on hold for the fifth week in a row as the market is grinding higher.
- The 50, 100 and 200-period simple moving averages are coiled together while Gold is in consolidation mode. The RSI, MACD and Stochastics indicators are bullish as buyers consider the consolidation phase as a bull flag while the market holds above 1,189.49 (September 4 low). Nothing indicates that the bullish momentum should abate anytime soon. Bulls target might be located near 1,225.90 (July 17 low).
- A break below 1,189.49 (September 4 low) should invalidate the bullish bias.
