  • Gold is in consolidation mode, trading below the 1,500 mark. 
  • A daily close above 1,500 can lead to a run towards 1,510/1520 price levels. 
 

Gold daily chart

 
The yellow metal is trading in a bull trend above the 100 and 200-day simple moving averages (SMAs). In the last weeks, the market has been consolidating near $1,500 per ounce and the 50 SMA. 

Gold four-hour chart

 
The yellow metal is trading below the 200-period simple moving average (SMA) and below the 1,500 mark; all-in-all suggesting a bearish bias in the medium term. A break below $1,490 a troy once can expose the 1,460 swing low. On the flip side, a daily close above 1,500 could trigger a bull run towards the 1,510/1,520 resistance levels
