Gold Technical Analysis: pennant pattern seen at five-month highs

  • Gold is currently trading at $1,238 per Oz, having clocked a high of $1,244.40 – the level last seen on July 17.
  • Notably, it has charted a pennant pattern on the 4-hour chart. A break above the upper edge of the pennant, currently at $1,240 would signal a continuation of the rally from the Nov. 30 low of $1,216 (pole low) and would open up upside toward $1,268 (target as per the measured height method).
  • A pennant breakdown – move below $1,235 – if confirmed, would validate RSI's breach of the ascending trendline and could yield a drop to $1,228 (ascending 50-candle simple moving average).
