Gold price is in a bearish trend for both short- and long-term. The price has broken below short-term support at $1,180-85. There is a strong possibility of a push lower towards the next support of $1,160. My longer-term view remains bearish, specially if we break below $1,130. The downward pressures will accelerate the decline.
Red line = support
Gold price has broken below the red trend-line support as shown in the 4-hour chart above. The price is also below the Ichimoku cloud confirming bearish trend. I believe the upward bounce from $1,140 is over at $1,233 and a new downward move has started. Support is at $1,160.
Blue line = weekly support
The weekly chart remains bearish as price was rejected at the cloud resistance and is trading below the kijun- and tenkan-sen. Resistance is at $1.200 and $1,217. Once we break out below the blue trend line support, we are going towards $1,000 or even $900.
