Ichimoku cloud indicator analysis of gold for December 19, 2017

Gold price continues to make higher highs in the short-term as yesterday price broke above $1,262 to a marginal new high at $1,264. Short-term trend is bullish and changes only if price breaks below $1,255.


Red lines - wedge pattern

Gold price is trading above the 4-hour Kumo (cloud). Support is at $1,257. Wedge support is at $1,261. Resistance is at $1,265-66. I do not believe Gold price has much more upside. I expect Gold to reverse lower soon.


Blue line - resistance trend line

Gold price is trading above the weekly Kumo (cloud) and has bounced off of it as expected. Gold price is however below both the tenkan- and the kijun-sen. As long as price is below these two indicators and the blue trend line, I will be expecting price to move towards $1,200-$1,220 for a final new low.
