Gold DAILY PRICE CHART (April 8, 2018 – Nov 28, 2019) Zoomed out
Gold DAILY PRICE CHART (15 June – Nov 28, 2019) Zoomed In
Looking at the daily chart, we notice on Friday Gold abandoned the uptrend channel originated from early July, generating a significant bearish signal.
Today, the price is still moving in the trading zone entered in Nov 4 ($1,440- $1,510). Sellers look to send the price for a test of the low end of it. Thus, a close below the low end could entice more sellers to join the market to press towards 200-Day average then $1,400 handle. Yet, the weekly support levels underlined on the chart (zoomed in) should be considered.
On the other hand, a failure in closing below the low end of the zone would mean a potential pullback as sellers take profit i.e. XAU/USD could reverse course towards the high end. That said, the daily and weekly resistance levels underscored on the chart should be monitored.

Gold Four-HOUR PRICE CHART (Oct 22 – Nov 28, 2019)
From the four-hour chart, we notice on Nov 26 Gold rebounded from $1,450 then rallied and started to develop two double bottom patterns. The first pattern eyes a test of $1,475 contingent on breaking and remaining above the neckline located at $1,462. The neckline of the second pattern resides at $1,479. Thus, if the price breaks and remain above this suggest a rally towards $1,510.
A break above $1,487 could be an additional signal for buyers to push towards $1,498. Although, some buyers may take profit at $1,493. On the other hand, a break below $1,445 could resume XAU/USD price action towards $1,430. Yet, some sellers may take profit at the low end of current trading zone discussed above on the daily chart.
