Gold price started this week on a strong foot breaking above $1,290 and reaching $1,302. However this strength was short-lived and it now looks more like a fake break out and a bull trap. Gold price ends the week below $1,280. The weekly candle cautions for more downside to come.
Blue line - major trend line resistance
Red line - major trend line support
Red rectangle - short-term support
Gold price is ending the week below $1,280 and the bearish black candle with the long upper tail implies that the move above $1,290 was most probably a fake break out. Gold price has support at $1,276 as we mentioned in previous posts and a break below it will open the way for another leg down in Gold price towards $1,250-30 area. Resistance remains at $1,300 as we noted in previous posts. Bulls need to recapture and stay above of $1,300 in order for them to be in control of the trend. The major rejection back in January at $1,347 may lead to a move towards the red upward sloping major trend line support. This gives us a target between $1,200-$1,220.
