Gold Consolidates in a Triangle Pattern



In its 4-hour chart, the Gold price exposes a corrective sequence that follows the structure of a descending triangle pattern. This chartist figure suggests the possibility of a bearish continuation.
In the same way, according to the Elliott wave theory, the corrective pattern that follows a 3-3-3-3-3 sequence remains incomplete. Until now, the triangle pattern should complete its wave e of Subminuette degree identified in green before continuing its bearish short-term trend.
On the other hand, the RSI oscillator tested the zone below level 40, suggesting the change of the short-term bias from bullish to bearish.
In this context, there exists the possibility of a limited upward move toward the zone between $1,955.70 and $1,973.33 per ounce, from where the precious metal could complete the wave e in green and found fresh sellers expecting to incorporate their limit short positions.
We expect the test of the $1,956 per ounce from where the yellow metal could start to decline with a potential profit target in the zone of $1,862.9 per ounce. This level corresponds to the Augusts’ low from where the price started to consolidate in a triangle pattern.
Our bearish scenario’s invalidation level locates at $1,993.48 per ounce, corresponding to the end of wave c in green.
