Gold has managed to break over the key 1348.65 high (24/07/2013). This now greatly weakens the bearish structure that had been so dominant over recent weeks. The bias now switches to a bullish one with scope for a return towards 1422.10 (06/06/2013 high). A push under 1316.04 (14/08/2013 low) is required to negate the near-term bullish structure.
We also note that the failure to return to the annual low at 1180.50 is a further bullish indication and may suggest scope for a medium term basing formation.
