Gold Technical Analysis: Focus on today's UTC close

  • Gold created an inverted hammer on Friday, making today's close is pivotal.
  • Acceptance below Friday's low of $1,286 would validate signs of bullish exhaustion near $1,300 and could yield a corrective pullback to $1,260. A daily close above $1,300 is required for bullish continuation.
  • The former scenario is more likely to play out as the impending bullish crossover between the 50- and 200-day moving average (MAs) -  a big-time lagging indicator - signaling short-term overbought conditions.
