   “¢   After Friday’s rejection slide from an important horizontal resistance, the precious metal traded with a mild negative bias at the start of a new trading week.

   “¢   The fact that the commodity has held below key moving averages (100 & 200-period) confluence hurdle on the 4-hourly chart points to some additional intraday weakness.  

   “¢   Technical indicators on the mentioned chart have failed to recover from the negative territory and thus, add credence to the short-term negative outlook.

   “¢   However, a sustained move beyond the key $1200 psychological mark might trigger a short-covering bounce back closer to an over two-week old barrier.
