Gold prices remain locked in a well-defined range near the $1100/oz figure as markets mark time until a new directional trigger emerges. A daily close below the 23.6% Fibonacci expansionat 1078.10 exposes the 38.2% level at 1058.48. Alternatively, a move above the 23.6% Fib retracement at 1102.94 opens the door for a challenge of the 38.2% threshold at 1122.52.
