Ichimoku indicator analysis of gold for August 16, 2017

Gold is pulling back but the overall trend remains bullish. We have a weekly breakout and a back test in play. A short-term support that could justify a reversal is very close.

In the 4-hour chart, the price is above the Kumo. RSI (5) is oversold and turning higher. Support is at $1,260. I see low chances of moving below the cloud. It is highly possible to see an upward reversal soon to new highs above $1,300. Resistance is at $1,280.

Black line -long-term resistance

Blue line -long-term support

The gold price has broken last week above the long-term trend line resistance. This week we see a back test. I expect the price to hold above it and continue higher towards $1,450 over the coming months.
