Red lines - bearish channel

Black lines - bullish divergence

Gold price has broken out of the bearish channel and is now back testing it. The RSI is warning bears that the downside momentum has weakened. The 4-hour candle pattern of a bullish hammer is usually a trustworthy reversal pattern. Resistance is at $1,247. Breaking above it will confirm the reversal pattern and push price towards cloud resistance at $1,255-60.

On a daily basis Gold price has also made a bullish hammer. With FOMC tonight we expect Gold price to be volatile. If price is near $1,260 before the FOMC, I would prefer to be neutral as we might see another leg down towards $1,220-$1,200.
