Gold expected to move sideways

The recent decline in prices of the ounce troy of Gold appears to have met solid contention near the $1550 mark, where sits a Fibo retracement of the December-January rally. Tuesday’s negative price action was on the back of rising open interest and lower volume, signalling that further rangebound should be on the cards in the short-term horizon at least.
