Gold jumped to 4-hour 200-candle moving average (MA) of $1,311 earlier today, as expected, but failed to take out the key hurdle and is currently trading at $1,308.  

The hourly chart relative strength index (RSI) has rolled over from the overbought territory, creating lower highs in favor of the bears.  

Meanwhile, rejection at the 200-candle MA has strengthened the bearish case put forward by the negative crossover of the 100- and 200-candle MAs on the 4H.  

The yellow metal, therefore, could see a minor pullback to $1,303-$1,300 levels. A break above the 4H 200-candle MA of $1,311 is needed to revive the bullish view.
