1 – Gold managed to drop below the earlier support level of $1,314. Well, in order to be more sure about the bearish breakout, you should wait a bit for a couple of candles to close below the support level.

2 – You can see a bearish crossover on the 50- periods EMA at $1,317. The crossover resulted in a bearish engulfing candle, which also supports the bearish sentiment of investors.

3 – Thirdly, the bullion has broken below the symmetric triangle pattern at $1,316. Typically, on the breakout of the symmetric triangle, instruments continues trading towards breakout side. The same, we can expect from Gold today.

Gold // XAUUSD – Trading Plan

I’m going to wait for a bit retracement in Gold until $1,316 before taking another sell position with a stop above $1,319 and take profit at $1,311. Good luck.
