Red line - resistance trend line

Green line - support trend line

Gold price is challenging the medium-term downward sloping red trend line resistance. Trend remains bearish as price is still below this trend line. Support is at $1,460 where we see the green upward sloping trend line. As long as price holds above this level, bulls still have hopes for a break above the $1,490-$1,500 resistance and a move towards $1,550-$1,600. If price breaks below support we expect $1,430-$1,400 to be seen. Near resistance we prefer to be sellers as the risk reward favors the bearish scenario.

In ichimoku cloud terms we confirm that price is below major resistance as price is still below the red Kumo (cloud) inside the bearish channel. Price is above the tenkan- and kijun-sen indicators which provide support at $1,467-72. A daily close below this area will be a bearish sign increasing the chances of breaking below $1,460.The material has been provided by InstaForex Company - www.instaforex.com
