Gold looks capped around $1,650/oz
Prices of the ounce troy of the precious metal appears to have met strong resistance in the $1,650 area. Declining open interest in gold coupled with positive price action hints at the likeliness that further gains look limited around the $1,650 per ounce for the time being, opening the door at the same time for a potential consolidation or correction lower.
