Gold Price Reaches First Target – Potential Short-term Pull Back Now Possible

As discussed in our last analysis on gold from January 4, a bearish AB=CD pattern was forming with a 100% D leg completion at 1,273.9. That price target was reached last Friday as gold hit a high of 1,282.11 for the week. Although not assured, a pullback is now possible. In addition to the ABCD completion, potential resistance can also be seen in this general price area from previous price structure (support and resistance).
