Gold Technical Analysis: $1,279 is the level to beat for the bears


The bearish view put forward by the range breakdown last Friday would gain credence if the yellow metal confirms flag breakdown with a move below $1,279.

4-hour chart

As seen above, the yellow metal has charted a bear flag on the 4-hour chart; a bearish continuation pattern; which often accelerates the preceding bearish move.

Put simply, a drop below $1,279 (flag support) would open up downside toward $1.261 (target as per the measured move method, that is, pole height subtracted by breakout price). Notably, the flag breakdown could happen soon as the yellow metal is on the defensive, having witnessed a contracting triangle breakdown earlier this month.
