The gold price breached the $1,212.34 level and settled below it. The price is under negative correctional pressure targeting a test of 1,180.86 levels, which represents 38.2% Fibonacci for the rise that is from 1,047.61 to 1,263.23. Therefore, these factors encourage us to prefer the overall bullish trend in the upcoming period, and its continuation is conditioned by holding above the mark of 1,180.86. Breaking this level represents a negative factor that will push the price further downwards in the longest term. Note that breaching the 1,212.34 level will provide a good positive motive that will support the attempts to head towards the current bullish wave targets, which begin at 1,263.23 and extend to 1,300.00.
