XAU/USD four-hour chart

 
XAU/USD is consolidating the selloff below 1500 while trading well below the main SMAs suggesting an overall bearish bias in the medium term. Volatility is decreasing while the market might be declining in the short term towards the 1488, 1477 and 1460 levels which bulls might try to defend. On the flip side, bullish attempts should lose steam near 1505, 1520 and 1540 price levels.
