XAU/USD has come under steady pressure since failing on a closing basis late last month at the 7th square root progression of the year-to-date low near 1418. The decline that has followed has been unimpressive and looks only corrective in nature. However, a big test of this this view will come around 1357 to 1337 as this zone marks a convergence of the 2nd square root progression of the August high, the 5th square root progression of the year’s low and the 38% retracement of the June-August advance. If the metal is set to undergo a more immediate upside resumption then this is the support zone from where it should probably occur. Too much additional weakness beyond1337 would raise the possibility that a much more volatile and drawn out corrective process will play out. Only aggressive weakness below 1270 would turn the technical outlook in Gold more overtly negative.
