Key quotes

“Gold maintains a top below $1765/61 and we view the current bounce as temporary and we look for a fresh fall to retest $1682/71 – the 38.2% retracement of the entire 2015/2020 bull market and the recent and June 2020 lows.”  

“With US real yields and the USD expected to strengthen further our bias stays to the downside in Q2 for a move below $1682/71 with support then seen next at $1620/15 and ultimately the ‘measured top objective’ and 50% retracement at $1564/61. Whilst an overshoot to $1510 should be allowed for, our bias would be to start to look for a floor here.”

“Resistance at the $1761/65 breakdown point ideally caps to keep the immediate risk lower. Above 41816 though is needed to see the top negated.”
