Gold four-hour chart
Gold is challenging the 1563 resistance as the market is trading in a rising channel above the main SMAs. A break above this level can see the metal appreciating towards the 1570 and 1580 resistance levels. On the flip side, failure at the 1563 level, can lead to a tight range just below the level and a potential deeper pullback towards the 1555 and 1550 levels.
