Gold Technical Analysis: Deeper pullback likely below 55-period EMA on 4H

Gold bears may feel emboldened if the 4H 55-candle exponential moving average (EMA), currently at $1,280, is breached.

4-hour chart

  • As seen above, the 55-candle EMA has acted as strong support twice in the last six days. Therefore, it is the level to beat for the bears.
  • More importantly, the yellow metal has carved out a lower price high, validating Friday's bearish outside reversal candle.  Put simply, the bull grip has weakened in the last few days. As a result, a break below the 55-period EMA could yield a deeper pullback, possibly to $1,260.
  •  A violation of the falling trendline seen in the above chart would shift risk in favor of a re-test of $1,300.

Trend: bearish below 4H 55-candle EMA
