Gold downtrend continuing towards 1720 zone
As expected, Gold has made the move lower to 1755 zone. The downtrend is expected to continue towards 1720.
If the market makes a pullback to the 78.6-88.6 zone we should see another leg of selling. We can also see a trend line which adds to the confluence. 1765-60 is the first target but we might see a move lower, possibly next week towards 1720. Watch for the levels as shown on the chart as selling the rally is imo, the best option. Read more...

Gold Price Analysis: XAU/USD bounces off multi-month lows, keeps the red below $1765 level
Gold remained depressed through the first half of the European session, albeit has managed to recover a part of its intraday losses to eight-month lows. The precious metal was last seen trading near the $1764-63 region, down around 0.75% for the day.
From a technical perspective, slightly oversold RSI on the 1-hourly chart seemed to be the only factor that extended some support to the XAU/USD. That said, oscillators on 4-hourly/daily charts are holding in the bearish territory and are still far from being in the oversold zone. This, in turn, favours bearish traders and supports prospects for further weakness. Read more...
