GOLD – XAU/USD – Technical Outlook
On Thursday, we spoke about ascending triangle pattern – gold is still trading that pattern and it’s extending a solid resistance near $1,228. Due to the lack of top-tier news, the precious metal isn’t moving a lot and facing a hard time to break $1,228 but it’s just a matter of time when a big news announcement comes.
Anyhow, the bullish breakout is likely to extend gold’s rally until $1,234. Whereas, below this, gold is likely to remain bearish with a support at $1,221.
Key Trading Level: 1227.64
