Gold could see a corrective bounce above $1,290, as the 4-hour chart is showing signs of bearish exhaustion.  

4-hour chart

Multiple long-tailed candles near $1,280 support indicate seller exhaustion. That coupled with a bullish divergence (higher lows on the RSI) indicate scope for a corrective move higher to descending 10-day MA, currently located at $1,300.

The probability of a corrective bounce, however, would drop sharply if the immediate support at $1,280 is breached.  

Trend: oversold bounce likely
