  • Gold is trading in a sideways manner in a range of $1,181 to $1,186, having dropped sharply from highs above $1,195 yesterday.
  • A break below $1,181 would signal a continuation of the sell-off from the highs above $1,195 and could yield a re-test of the August low of $1,160. The 5-day and 10-day moving averages (MAs) are trending south in favor of the bears.
  • Only a daily close above the 10-day MA would abort the bearish view.
