Magenta - long-term resistance

Blue line - long-term support

Long-term trend remains bullish as price is above the Kumo (cloud). Gold price is back above the long-term resistance. This is a very bullish sign. Gold bulls need to hold above this level and continue higher towards $1,390 which is the next target. Support is at $1,335 and next at $1,326. A break below these levels, will be very bearish for Gold. So far bulls remain in control.
