Technical analysis of Gold for October 16, 2018
Gold price made a higher high yesterday closer to our target area of $1,240. Price has reached the equality target relative to the first leg up from August lows, but as long as we hold above $1,200 I will be expecting a move to higher highs.

Gold price continues to trade above the bearish long-term channel and the trading range it was in for more than a month. Price is making higher highs and higher lows confirming the short-term bullish trend it is in. Short-term support is at $1,208 at the upper boundary of the trading range. Resistance is at $1,236 where we find the equality target relative to the first leg higher. A pullback towards $1,214-10 is not out of the question once we reach our first target area.
