Looking at the daily chart, we notice on Monday XAU/USD tested trading outside of upward channel originated form late June discussed in our last update. However, sellers pulled back causing a rally towards the channel’s range.

Today, the price moves in the trading zone entered in Nov 4 ($1,440- $1,510) eying 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 should be considered.

On the other hand, a failure in closing below the low end of the zone could signal weakness of sellers and may reverse Gold’s direction towards the high end. That said, the resistance levels at $1,474 and 1,498 should be monitored.
