Gold daily chart
Gold is trading in a bull trend above the main daily simple moving averages (SMAs). However, XAU/USD broke below a bear flag and has then been pulling back up in the last three trading sessions.
Gold four-hour chart
Following the bear breakout of the January bear flag, the sellers are seeing the current up move a correction that will lead to another bear leg. Sellers are looking for a break of the 1560 support with a continuation to 1550 and a potential drop to the 1540 level. However, a daily break above the 1570/75 resistance could invalidate the bearish scenario and re-establish a bullish bias in the market.
