Gold price is in a neutral trend. Only a clean exit out of the trading range could provide some momentum. Today after the NFP announcement we could see a break of the trading range. A rejection at $1,200 and a move below $1,184 will open the way for a move towards $1,140. A break above $1,207 will increase the chances of exiting the trading range to the upside towards $1,220-40.
