Gold Technical Analysis: Eyes $1,300 after triangle breakout

Gold witnessed a triangle breakout in the overnight trade, as the dovish Fed minutes pushed the greenback lower across the board.

4-hour chart

  • Repeated failure to penetrate the 55-day exponential moving average (EMA) followed by an upside break of the triangle pattern, coupled with the bullish relative strength index (RSI) of 60 indicates the scope for a test of supply around the psychological hurdle of $1,300.
  • A close above that level would invalidate last Friday's bearish outside reversal and open the doors to $1,310.
  • On the downside, the 55-day EMA of $1,282 is the level to bear for the bears.

Trend: mildly bullish
