Additionally, 14-bar relative strength index (RSI) also shows divergence when comparing the latest high with May 06 top.

As a result, chances of the quote’s pullback to $1278/77 can’t be denied, a break of which may recall $1272 and $1268.50 on the chart.

During the precious metal’s extra downside under $1268.50, current month low near $1266.00 and 61.8% Fibonacci expansion (FE) of its moves from April 10 could gain sellers’ attention.

Meanwhile, an upside clearance of $1290 can trigger the prices increase to $1300 with $1297 being an intermediate halt.

Also, 61.8% Fibonacci retracement near $1302 and April month top near $1311 could become buyers’ favorites beyond $1300.
