In doing so, the yellow metal attacks an upward sloping trend line from Wednesday while staying below 200-HMA. As a result, sellers are likely to eye an eight-day-old support line, at $1,876 now, during the further declines.

In a case where the sellers dominate past-$1,876, the monthly bottom close to $1,873 will be a halt before challenging the late-September low near $1,848/49.

On the flip side, gold buyers need to cross the 200-HMA level of $1,892 with eyes on the $1,900 threshold.

Also acting as the key upside barrier is the monthly peak surrounding $1,921 that holds the gate for the metal’s run-up towards the mid-September high of $1,973.64.
