Gold is influenced by the absence of a strong direct long-trigger: the market apparently needs upward correction, however it failed to perform it yesterday.
Likelihood of the asset’s recovery to 1857.00 will remain in place. Though we can’t rule out a prior second testing of the support zone 1817.06-1818.83.
Local structure has signs of a sideways trend - the price is bracketed between support zone 1828.90-1830.24 and resistance 1851.37-1856.75. Current phase is upward that allows going long in a short term. But after testing the range’s upper boundary the market may head to the downside again.
Main scenario: Flat in the 1828.90-1856.75 range.
Alternative scenario: Decline to 1817.06-1818.83, new upward reversal afterwards.
Trading to both sides inside the 1828.90-1856.75 range.
