    Gold price daily chart 14-01-20 Zoomed in

    Looking at the daily chart, we notice yesterday Gold pointed lower and returned to the lower trading zone $1,555 - $,1526 signalling that more buyers were taking profits.

    A close below $1,526 could encourage more buyers to exit the market. This opens the door for sellers to take charge and peruse sending the price towards $1,453. In that scenario, the weekly support levels and area marked on the chart should be considered as some traders may exit/ join the marker nearby these points.

    Having said that, another close above $1,558 reflects some buyer’s reluctance to exit the market. This could lead the price towards $1,625 contingent on clearing the weekly resistance level underlined on the chart.
