Gold Technical Analysis: Poised to extend the ongoing positive momentum to 6-1/2 month tops

   •  The precious metal built on this month's goodish up-move of around 5.0% and is currently placed at fresh 6-1/2 month tops, around the $1284 region.

   •  A sustained move beyond 200-DMA, for the first time since mid-May 2018, was seen as a key trigger behind the recent upsurge over the past week or so.

   •  This followed by last week's bullish breakthrough near 1-1/2-month-old ascending trend-channel reinforced the bullish outlook and sets the stage for additional gains.

   •  Hence, a follow-through move, towards testing 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of the $1365-$1160 April to August downfall, now looks a distinct possibility.

   •  Technical indicators on the daily chart are already pointing to slightly overbought conditions and might turn out to be the only factor capping any further up-move.
