Prices of the ounce troy of the yellow metal remain immersed into a generalized pessimism alternating gains with losses in the $1,570/80 region.

Gold supported at $1,550

Prices of the yellow metal are recovering ground lost in the last three sessions and are looking to extend the bounce after meeting contention in the $1,550 region, where converge monthly lows and a Fibo retracement of the December-March rally.

In addition, the recent decline in prices have been tracking the negative divergence between prices and the daily RSI. Further downside should not be surprising and could test the key 200-day SMA, today at $1,497.57.
