GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS – Prices are hinting that a turn lower is ahead after showing a bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern below resistance at a falling trend line set from April 2013. Negative RSI divergence bolsters the case for a downside scenario. Initial support is at 1313.14, the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that exposing the 38.2% level at 1287.48. Trend line resistance is now at 1354.05.

Prices found interim support in the 100.23-73 area, marked by the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion and the December 27 high. A break downward targets the 38.2% Fib at 97.17. Rising trend line support-turned-resistance is at 104.06.
