Gold had a very volatile day yesterday. The price remains pressured and poised to move lower as long as bulls cannot break above $1,290. Breaking above that area will open the way for $1,350. Until then, we remain bearish or neutral.
Yellow area - overbought stochastic and previous tops
Gold is trading inside the Kumo on the 4-hour chart. The price has retraced 50% of the decline from $1,295 to $1,260. Initially, the price broke below the Kumo only to come back upwards and make a new short-term higher high closer to the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement. I expect more downside. $1,260 is critical support.
