Gold: bulls fended off an attack
TP $1237 TP2 $1212

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.
