GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Prices recoiled from resistance at 1292.15, marked by the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion and reinforced by a falling trend line set from October 28. A break below support at 1270.67, the 50% level, threatens to overturn a bullish Piercing Line candlestick pattern and expose the 61.8% Fib at 1249.18. Alternatively, a reversal above resistance targets the 23.6% expansion at 1318.73.
