Gold Price Analysis: Trims gains, immediate bias bearish

  • Gold has backed off from session highs and could suffer deeper losses in the short-term.
  • Gold’s daily chart is reporting a bearish reversal setup.

Gold is currently trading at $1,637 per Oz, having hit a high of $1,650 in Asia. 

The pullback is not surprising, as the technical studies are biased bearish. To start with, the daily chart shows a spinning top bearish reversal pattern – Monday’s spinning top followed by a 1.8% drop on Tuesday. 

Further, the yellow metal created a big red candle with a notable upper shadow (sell on the rise mentality) on Tuesday, reinforcing the short-term bearish bias.  Also, the daily RSI is reporting a bearish divergence. 

The odds appear stacked in favor of a drop to the 50-day average support at $1,590. The bearish case would weaken if prices find acceptance above $1,671, invalidating the lower highs setup on the hourly chart.
