Gold Technical Analysis: on the verge of confirming a fresh bearish breakdown

   •  Drops back to challenge an ascending trend-line support, a part of a symmetrical triangular formation on short-term charts.
   •  A convincing break below the contracting wedge support would open the room for further depreciating move towards a medium-term ascending trend-line support, extending from January 2017 through lows touched in June/December 2017.
   •  Descending trend-line resistance, also a part of the triangular formation should continue to keep a lid on any meaningful recovery attempt.
