Gold Spot bounced in severely oversold conditions but way further than I expected recovering 3 days of losses to hit 1817.

Gold’s technical analysis: Advances yet to conquer dominant bearish structure

Gold is engaging the 1,825 level, in-line with the Ichimoku cloud’s lower surface, which happens to be the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the up leg from 1,670 to the all-time high of 2,074.
