Gold four-hour chart

XAU/USD is trading below the 1600.00 figure and the 100 SMA as the market is consolidating last Friday’s drop.

A break below the 1593.00 support can lead to further weakness towards the 1586.00 and 1581.00 price levels, according to the Technical Confluences Indicator.
Resistance: 1602.00, 1606.00, 1611.00
