Gold continued to retrace its recent sharp losses yesterday. Despite the extent of the move, recent gains are still considered a correction with a strong band of resistance evident up to 2030.0, the Aug 11 high. Sharp losses on this day highlighted a bearish candle pattern known as a standard line that signals scope for a deeper sell-off. Bulls would need to clear $2030.0 to offset the bearish risk. A sell-off would expose key support at $1863.2.
