Yesterday it started journey from 1626 to and marked a low of 1573 and given closing at almost same levels. Well this was the first indication of bears and further indicating we will get if gold trades below $1570 on hourly basis then we may announce that it has topped out and it will fall further to $1540 and $1500 level coming trading sessions.

Today at the time of writing gold is trading and surviving below $1590 level.

Yellow metal has lost its status of safe heaven investment.

In our previous report also mentioned to go for  sell around 1600 for target of $1550  and $1520 level with strict stop loss of $1640 level, and our both targets have been achieved smoothly, so we are expecting that our readers must have made profit from this move.

The price action on the daily technical chart suggest us that it’s just a starting of free fall gold will fall further and will arrive at $1350 level in near term. But right now the situation is where to enter in the gold and where to exit from intraday to weekly point of view.

Well our readers are advised to sit in the sell side with tight stop loss of $1640 . The next arrival of gold is $1500 level and $1450 level in next weeks. The short term trend is down so in a downtrend market sell on high will be profitable strategy.

Odds are in favor of bears and daily to weekly bias remains bearish on gold as long as $1640 level remains intact on closing basis.  A bearish divergence on the RSI has advised to sell already and now MACD crossover is flashing the sell signal with a bearish crossover.
