Rising wedge on the daily

The metal printed a session high of $1,866 a few minutes ago and nearly tested the upper end of the rising wedge pattern, represented by trendlines connecting March 20 and June 5 lows and March 9 and April 14 highs. 

The technical bias would turn bearish if the metal dives out of the rising wedge pattern. At press time, the lower end or support of the rising wedge is located at $1,803. The support would shift higher to $1,825 by the end of July.

Take note that the likes of CitiGroup and Goldman Sachs expect gold to set a new record high above $1,920 in the near-term.
