Gold price has short-term support at $1,217. Breaking below this level will push prices towards $1,210-$1,208. Gold could still make a higher high at $1,240 but overall I expect a move lower to form a higher low and then move higher towards $1,250-60. I do not see much upside from current levels. Only after a pull back. Resistance is at $1,232-33. Breaking it will push price to $1,240. Prices are now trading out of the bearish channel. This is a bullish sign for the medium-term. This is why I expect the bounce in Gold to push prices eventually higher towards $1,270.
