The white metal tracks the bullish momentum seen across the precious metals space, thanks to the relentless sell-off in the US dollar across the board.

However, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) has entered into the overbought region on the said time frame, warranting caution for the XPD bulls.

A pullback towards the pattern resistance now support at $2715 could be in the offing.

If the sellers take over complete control, the bullish 21-simple moving average (SMA) at $2684 could be put at risk.

The next line of defense for the buyers is seen at $2663, where the 50-SMA is located.
