  • Gold prices remain in the small range after stepping back from Tuesday’s high.
  • Buyers look for an upside break of the triangle resistance, 50-HMA.
  • 50% Fibonacci retracement, 200-HMA could check sellers on the downside break of the triangle.

Gold prices remain mildly positive near $1,647 amid the early Thursday morning in Asia. The bullion has been trading in a range between $1,641 and $1,658 off-late. Even so, it does portray a descending triangle bullish formation on the hourly (H1) chart.

In addition to the triangle’s resistance line, 50-HMA also increases the importance of $1,653 as the near-term key upside barrier.

While MACD and RSI are both signaling neutral sentiment, the continuation of a broad recovery should remain on the cards.

As a result, the yellow metal’s run-up beyond $1,653 could propel it to the weekly top of $1,674.15 whereas $1,700 and the previous month high near $1,703 will lure the bulls afterward.

Alternatively, the quote’s declines below the formation’s support of $1,641 could drag it to March 04 high surrounding $1,626.

Though, a confluence 200-HMA and 50% Fibonacci retracement of March 31 to April 06 rise, close to $1,621, can question the sellers below $1,626.
