Gold Price Analysis: Short-term ascending triangle keeps bears hopeful

  • Gold remains below $1560/62 area since late-January 08.
  • Four-day-old rising trend line limits immediate declines.
  • A lack of momentum seems to trouble traders.

Gold prices seesaw around $1,558 during early Monday. The yellow metal recently took a U-turn from multi-day-old horizontal resistance but is still trading inside the short-term rising triangle. Also, RSI and MACD are troubling traders while portraying no major momentum.

However, multiple pullbacks from $1,560/62, coupled with broad US dollar strength, keep the odds of the bullion’s declines.

With this, sellers’ will look for a clear break of $1,555 to aim for the mid-month low surrounding $1,547 and the monthly bottom near $1,543 during further declines.

Alternatively, buyers could sneak in if the quote rallies successfully beyond $1,562. In doing so, 50% and 61.8% Fibonacci retracements of the declines from January 08 to January 15, at $1,573 and $1,582 respectively, will please the bulls.
