    "Support for gold was well pronounced around the 100-day moving average of $1,216 and this level should hold over the short term as we await Monday's renewed Greek debt negotiations."

    Pair's Outlook
    On Thursday, the bullion tried to regain bullish momentum, helped by demand area around 1,215. This support zone was represented by 100-day SMA and weekly S1, and it has finally pushed Gold upwards. However, the precious metal was immediately stopped by the closest resistance in face of 38.2% Fibonacci retracement at 1,229. Moreover, this obstacle is reinforced by 55-day SMA; therefore, a penetration of this level in unlikely in the short-term. Meanwhile, both near and long-term technical studies are now giving signals to sell Gold. 

    Traders' Sentiment
    Sentiment towards the precious metal is remaining strongly optimistic among SWFX traders, even despite the fact that a share of bullish positions decreased to 62%, down one more percentage point from yesterday.
