    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.

    From the four-hour chart, we notice yesterday XAUUSD broke below the uptrend line originated from the Jan 9 low at $1,540 eyeing a test of the low end of current trading zone discussed above on the daily chart.

    A break below $1,517 could lead XAU/USD towards $1,498. Yet, the weekly support level underscored on the chart should be watched closely. On the flip side, any break above the Jan 10 high at $1,563 may push the price towards $1,590. Although, the daily resistance level underlined on the chart would be worth monitoring.
