Gold rallied and stalled just above the $2221 target discussed in Wednesday’s analysis at $2225.3 before pulling back. A daily long-legged doji reflects near-term uncertainty and warns that a deeper test of support will likely take place before the uptrend extends to the next major target at $2246. This is a tight call, but near-term odds favor a test of the $2175 larger than (1.618) target of the wave down from $2225.3. Closing below this will call for the corrective move down to extend to $2165, $2149, and possibly $2138 in the coming days.

Nevertheless, prices rose at the end of the day and may challenge the 62 percent retracement of the decline from $2225.3 at $2203 early tomorrow. This is also the prior swing high. Closing above $2203 would strongly suggest that the move down from $2225.3 is complete. Settling above the $2215 smaller than (0.618) target of the wave up from $2149.2 will confirm this is the case and put the odds in favor of gold rising to $2246.
