The Gold price is trading above both the tenkan- and kijun-sen in the 4-hour chart. This is the first bullish sign. Gold price is inside the 4-hour Kumo trying to break above it. The 38% Fibonacci retracement resistance is found at $1,297. Gold bulls will need to break above $1,295-$1,300 in order for the short-term trend to change to bullish again.

On a daily basis, the price is inside the Kumo but has broken above the tenkan-sen (Redline indicator). Next resistance level is at $1,310. A daily close above it will confirm bullish daily trend confirmation. Gold price is expected to continue higher over the coming weeks as we considered this pullback as a buying opportunity.The material has been provided by InstaForex Company - www.instaforex.com
