XAU/USD daily chart

The market remains on the back foot with extreme volatility while testing the 1500 mark and the 200 SMA on the daily chart. Gold stays vulnerable but bears need to overcome the 1480 support on a daily basis to reach 1440 on the way down. Resistance can be expected near 1530 and in the 1548/1557 price zone. 
Resistance: 1530, 1548, 1557
Support: 1500, 1480, 1440
