Gold confirms its breakdown

The price of gold crashed in the last two hours after retesting the upside obstacles. XAU/USD rallied right after the US data publication but it has failed to stay higher signaling strong sellers and a potential deeper drop. A larger downside movement needs confirmation, so we'll have to wait for a fresh opportunity.

The yellow metal rallied in the short term as the US reported poor economic data today. The Core PCE Price Index rose by only 0.3% versus 0.4% expected, Unemployment Claims came in at 231K versus 228K forecasted, Personal Spending surged by 0.2% less versus 0.4% estimated, while Chicago PMI dropped unexpectedly lower from 60.3 points to 56.0 points below 58.1 predictions.

Gold confirms its breakdown

I've told you in my previous analyses that Gold could drop deeper if it makes a valid breakdown from the triangle pattern. XAU/USD dropped as much as 1,802 today where it has found support.

The price came back to test and retest the 1,820 - 1,823 resistance area and the triangle's downside line which represents a dynamic resistance. Now it has plunged and it could challenge the 1,805 support again.

XAU/USD Forecast!

The bias is bearish, a new lower low, dropping and closing below 1,802 could activate more declines. A valid breakdown could help the sellers to go short again.
