Gold could now attempt a correction lower

The ounce troy of gold briefly printed fresh 2020 highs above the key barrier at $1,700 on Monday. The move up, however, was in tandem with declining open interest and volume, noting that short covering was behind the advance. Against this backdrop and adding the divergence in the daily RSI, a corrective downside in the near-term looks the most likely scenario.
