Gold Technical Analysis: Bears await a break below an important horizontal support


   •  The commodity extended last week's rejection slide from $1235 horizontal resistance and remains within striking distance of an important horizontal support.

   •  A convincing break below the mentioned horizontal support would confirm a bearish double-top chart pattern on the 1-hourly chart and pave the way for the additional near-term downfall. 

   •  Technical indicators on the said chart hold in bearish territory and hence, a follow-through weakness, possibly back towards YTD lows, remains a distinct possibility.
