The golden metal in its 8-hour chart illustrates a bearish process that remains intact. Follow with us our reasoning for a potential bearish continuation in Gold.

1. The latest rally developed by the US Dollar index, suggests the short-term weakness in the yellow metal.

2. The stock market's rally shows the risk-on preference by big traders. In consequence, the safe-heaven commodity should under-performs for a short time.

3. From the wave analysis perspective, price action makes us expect a decline in five waves as a wave C labeled in black. This downward movement could accelerate on coming sessions. While price continues moving under $1,472.9, the bias will continue bearish.

4. A sell-side position will activate if the price closes under $1,459.5 per ounce. Our conservative profit target is at $1,450.5; a bearish extension could drive to the golden metal to continue its declines to $1,442.25, even until $1,432.3 per ounce.

5. Our bearish scenario will be invalid if price soars and closes above $1,472.9.

6. The risk of the bearish scenario will come from the end of the bullish cycle on the stock market, or if the US Dollar index continues developing mostly bearish.
