The reversal bullish hammer pattern has played out very well as expected so far. The tenkan-sen is resistance (red line indicator). A weekly close above it will be a bullish sign. A rejection in the area of $1,320-$1,310 could bring a pullback in Gold prices towards $1,280.The material has been provided by InstaForex Company - www.instaforex.com
