The Gold is trading above both the tenkan- and the kijun-sen in the 4-hour chart. Short-term support is on Friday's low at $1,325. A break below that level will be a bearish sign. A break below $1,325 will most probably push Gold towards $1,300 or lower. Resistance is at $1,345. Break above it and we could see another run towards $1,350 where we find the long-term resistance area. So far bulls have the upper hand if we take under consideration the fact that Gold has made a higher low relative to the early February low at $1,307.

Magenta line - long-term resistance

On a daily basis, Gold price remains above the daily Kumo and is trying to break above the tenkan-sen. Gold price has important long-term resistance in the $1,350-60 area and if it manages to move towards that level again, it will most probably break above it and move towards $1,400. For now, the trend favors bulls. Only a break below $1,320-$1,300 could change the trend.
