Gold price is bouncing strongly once again towards $1,720. Price has held for another week the $1,700 level unless bears take the upper hand tomorrow. Bulls are trying to recapture the tenkan-sen and kijun-sen pivot point intersection.
Inability to close above the $1,716 intersection could lead to another pull back towards $1,675 and the cloud support. Gold bulls are now showing signs of strength as they reclaim $1,715-20. However the most important obstacle bulls need to overcome is the blue rectangle resistance recent high at $1.745.
Blue rectangle – resistance
Gold price is approaching the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the recent decline. The 61.8% Fibonacci level is at $1,722. As one can clearly see the area of $1,700-$1,725 is a very important area for Gold. Price has been mostly moving around it since early April. Focusing on the bigger picture, the levels to watch are 1.785-90 (need to break $1,745 for this target to be achieved) and $1,670-40 (need $1,700 to break on a weekly basis).
