Gold stuck between trendlines
The price for gold continues to bounce off the post-December 2016 rising trendline, providing some hope. But the bulls now need to see the price move back above the rising short-term trendline from the May low, which it broke below last week.
This would need a push above $1303, and then the $1307 area will come into play. A drop below $1290 would break the longer-term rising trendline and see support around $1284 tested.
