Bullish Ichimoku Cloud with rising Senkou Span A and B; a golden cross of Tenkan-sen and Kijun-sen with the rising lines; the market was supported by Kijun-sen, but now is overbought and it’s under strong resistance.
Gold: bulls fended off an attack
TP $1237 TP2 $1212
On the daily chart, the first attempt to test support at $1264-1267 an ounce was a failure. Bears want to repeat their attack. Their success will increase the odds of the pair reaching 78.6% and 200% targets of Gartley pattern and AB=CD.
On H1, to resume the downtrend XAU/USD needs to make another test of support at 88.6% of the last descending wave. If bulls manage to keep gold above the upper border of the downtrend channel, the possibility of reaching 88.6% target of the "Shark” pattern will increase.
Expanding bearish Ichimoku Cloud with rising Senkou Span A; a cancelled dead cross of Tenkan-sen and Kijun-sen with the rising lines; the market are returned into the positive area.
