Gold is presently facing very sensitive areas after touching the uptrend line, which carried the movements from 680.00 to all-time high of 1265.00. Actually, there are negative technical factors that could assist the metal to breach this aforesaid trend line as follows:

1-The bearish harmonic AB=CD pattern that could take it towards the second technical objective of the pattern at 61.8% of CD leg around 1125.00 zones.

2-The suggested Elliott count as wave A isn't completed yet.

3-The obvious bearish sign of AROON indicator.
