  • In case the quote drops under $1296 on a daily closing basis, the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of its 2018 downturn near $1287.30 and the 50-day simple moving average at $1279 could become Bears’ favorites.
  • Meanwhile $1316 and the aforementioned trend-line at $1325 can keep limiting the bullion’s near term upside.
  • Should there be additional upside past $1325, $1333 and $1341 may appear on the chart.
