Gold Technical Analysis: Retests weekly trading range support

   •  The precious metal extended overnight rejection slide from 200-hour SMA and dropped to test the lower end of its weekly trading range in the last hour. 

   •  A strong follow-through USD buying interest was seen as one of the key factors exerting some fresh selling pressure around the dollar-denominated commodity.

   •  A convincing break through the rectangular chart pattern formation should open room for the resumption of the commodity's well-established bearish trend. 

   •  Technical indicators on the 1-hourly chart have started drifting into oversold territory and might be the only factor to help limit deeper losses ahead of today's US CPI figures.
