The bullion market is finally gaining some bullish momentum over geopolitical tensions. Investors moved to safe-haven assets amid fears of a turbulent departure for Britain from the European Union. Moreover, the US dollar mostly remained weaker despite stronger than expected retail sales figures from the United States.

On the technical side, GOLD has completed the 50% retracement at $1,216. At the same time, 50 periods EMA is extending a solid resistance to gold near $1,216. The bullish breakout of 50% retracement level is likely to push gold towards 61.8% retracement at $1,219. We can expect a drop in gold prices only below $1,215.

1208.75 1217.3
1204.11 1221.2
1195.56 1229.74
Key Trading Level: 1212.65
