Gold Technical Analysis: Yellow metal recovering but not out of the woods


  • Gold is gaining steam for the third consecutive day. 
  • The market needs to overcome the 1475 resistance.
 

Gold daily chart

 
The yellow metal is trading in a bull flag, making lower lows and lower highs as it trading below the 50 and 100-day simple moving averages (DMAs). 
 

Gold four-hour chart

 
Gold is challenging the 1475 resistance and the 50 SMA on the four-hour chart. This is a key level to break for a potential move higher towards the 1490/1500 resistance zone. A rejection at 1475 would likely lead to a retest of the 1460 and 1450 support levels.
