Gold Technical Analysis: Set-up points to additional gains, bulls await a decisive move beyond $1300 mark

   •  The precious metal stalled its positive momentum, triggered by dovish FOMC meeting minutes and once again failed ahead of the key $1300 mark amid a modest USD rebound.

   •  Given the overnight bullish break-though a short-term descending trend-line, now coinciding with 100-hour SMA, any meaningful retracement might be seen as a buying opportunity.

   •  Bullish technical indicators on hourly/daily charts add credence to the constructive set-up and support prospects for further near-term appreciating move for the yellow metal. 

   •  Today's scheduled speeches by influential FOMC member might provide the required catalyst and prompt some aggressive technical buying beyond the mentioned $1300 barrier.
