Contrary to expectations, the yellow metal was driven by bearish forces on Thursday. This fall, however, was not significant due to the nearby-located 200-hour SMA and a channel line.
This support cluster was surpassed early today, thus giving bears the opportunity to push the pair down to its distant support set by the 23.60% Fibonacci retracement at 1,335.40.
Technical indicators remain bullish for this session. Being restricted by the 55-, 100– and 200-hour SMAs, Gold might be reluctant to pick up momentum during the following hours, at least.
