    hi! do u think once gold will hit
    then move up to 1240

      It has a downward momentum. If it goes to 1190 it could technically bounce, but 1.240 will be quite a challenge I think

    Depends on FOMC decision on 15th March , with hawkish or dovish comments by yellen , It can make or break gold in short and medium term.

      For sure FOMC and the Fed are always a factor to consider, especially in the USD and gold markets. However most of this is being priced daily in the markets

    I believe downside is already priced in by hawkish comments by FED, Downside will be limited to 1190-1980, strong resistance at 1218. need to move above 1250 for uptrend.

      1250 would be nice to confirm a resumption of the uptrend. I agree with the other levels you mentioned
