Ichimoku indicator analysis of gold for August 9, 2017

Gold price has reached very close to our minimum pull back to target and daily Kumo (cloud) support at $1,250 as expected and is bouncing. Price remains trapped inside the short-term bearish channel and short term trend remains neutral or slightly bearish. The longer-term view remains bullish.

On a daily basis, we have seen price back test the broken daily cloud. Price is now bouncing but is below the tenkan-sen. However, I believe we could still see a move lower to re-test the cloud before the next upwards move. A break above $1,273 will cancel any move lower.The material has been provided by InstaForex Company - www.instaforex.com
