Gold four-hour chart

 
The market is debating whether this latest bull-run on the four-hour chart is the continuation of the bull trend or a correction of the sharp drop seen at the start of January. A daily close above the 1588 level can lead to further gains towards the 1598 and 1610 price levels. On the flip side, if the bears break the 1576 level, the market can decline towards the 1570 and 1560 levels.
