GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Gold prices continue to hover above support at the lower bound of a would-be bearish Triangle chart pattern, now at 1270.75. Breaching that on a daily closing basis exposes the 1260.80-61.50 area (October 6 low, 50% Fibonacci expansion). Alternatively, a push above Triangle resistance at 1294.81 targets 1306.04, the October 16 high.
