Gold technical analysis: Forming a double top?

  • Gold is creating a double top on the daily chart.  
  • A break below $1,382 would confirm double top breakdown.  

Gold is currently trading just below $1,400, having faced rejection near $1,440 twice in the last two weeks.

The yellow metal seems to have created a double top pattern on the daily chart.  

A close below $1,382 (July 1 low & double top neckline) would confirm a double top breakdown – a bullish-to-bearish reversal – and open the doors to $1,326 (target as per the measured move method).  

A breakdown looks likely as the odds of aggressive Federal Reserve easing have dropped following Friday’s upbeat monthly non-farm payrolls data.  

The prospects of a double top breakdown, however, would weaken if the metal rises above Friday’s high of $1,424.
