Ichimoku cloud indicator analysis of gold for December 21, 2017

Gold price has reached the upper area of my resistance at $1,268 and got rejected as it sharply reversed back towards $1,265. Short-term trend remains bullish as price is making higher highs and higher lows but the wedge pattern formation implies that we should soon see a strong pull back at least towards $1,250.


Blue lines - bearish wedge pattern

Gold price has broken out and above the Ichimoku cloud. A back test of the broken cloud resistance should now follow. Thus a pull back towards $1,255 cloud support is my minimum expectation. Resistance is at $1,270. Support is at $1,255-50 and next at $1,220-$1,200.


On a daily basis Gold price has hit the daily Kijun-sen (yellow line indicator). Price is showing rejection signs. Daily support is at $1,250. Daily trend remains bearish as price is still below the daily Kumo (cloud). Next important resistance on a daily basis is at $1,280. I remain bearish short-term.The material has been provided by InstaForex Company - www.instaforex.com
