Gold price is trading around the 4hour Ichimoku cloud. There is a positive slope in the current move from March lows but we have also see three rejections around the $1,355-65 area. The second rejection was the most severe one as price reached $1,365 and could not even see a 4 hour close above $1,356. If price breaks below the cloud support again at $1,340 bears will want to break the black trend line at $1,338 in order for a push lower towards $1,320-$1,310. Bulls need to retake $1,355-60 and eventually break above this area for $1,400-$1,430.
