  • Gold gains ground in Asia as the US 10-year yield extends overnight drop. 
  • The metal looks to be charting a bear flag downside continuation pattern.

Gold is currently trading near $1,860 per ounce, representing a 0.37% gain on the day. 

The bounce from Monday’s one-month low of $1,816 has taken the shape of a bear flag pattern on the 4-hour chart. A bear flag is a pause that often refreshes lower, recharging bears’ engines for a more profound decline. 

A move below the lower end of the flag, currently at $1,840, would confirm a breakdown and imply a continuation of the decline from the Jan. 6 high of $1,959. The immediate support is seen at $1,816 ad $1,800. 

A convincing move above the hourly chart resistance of $1,870 would invalidate the bearish setup.
