Gold Technical Analysis: break above $1,300 elusive despite "golden crossover"

Gold's 50-day moving average (MA) crossed the 200-day MA from below earlier this week, confirming the golden crossover - a long-term bullish indicator.

So far, however, the golden crossover hasn't impressed the bulls. The yellow metal continues to trade in a narrowing price above $1,20. More importantly, a break above $1,300 will likely remain elusive, as the golden crossover is the result of the metal's 90-degree rally from the low of $1,196 seen on Nov. 13.

Put simply, the bulls may have run out of steam. In fact, the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) has rolled over from the overbought territory and has breached the rising trendline. As a result, a price pullback could be in the offing.
