Looking at the daily chart, we notice a possible failure swing. The failure of peak at C to overcome A. Any violation of the low B at $1,459 constitutes a sell signal.

On Monday, XAU/USD declined to the lower trading zone $1,440 - $1,510. Later, price has pressed lower eyeing a test of the low end of the zone. Thus, a close below the low end could be an additional sell signal, hinting to press towards $1,400 handle. Although, the weekly support levels underlined on the chart (zoomed in) should be considered.

On the other hand, a close above the other side of the trading zone, i.e. above the high end could increase the likelihood of rallying towards the vicinity of $1,555-58. Nevertheless, the weekly resistance area and level marked on the chart should be watched closely.

From the four-hour chart, we notice yesterday Gold broke below Oct 11 low at $1,474, then started a fresh downtrend move creating a lower low at $1,460.

Considering the selling signals discussed above on the daily chart. A break below $1,430 could send the price towards $1,400 handle. However, the weekly resistance level marked on the chart should be monitored. That said, a break above $1,500 handle could cause a rally towards $1,516. In that scenario, the high end of current trading zone at $1,510 needs to be kept in focus.
