Reuters SINGAPORE | Updated on February 08, 2021

Spot gold may test a support at $1,801 per ounce, a break below which could cause a fall to $1,783.

The metal is riding on a wave C from $1,875.26, which may travel to $1,726, its 100% projection level. A bearish pennant points at $1,726 as well.

The support at $1,783 triggered a bounce which seems to have ended around a resistance at $1,818. The downtrend may have resumed.

A break above $1,818 could lead to a gain to $1,840. On the daily chart, gold has deeply pierced below a support at $1,805,the 50% projection level of a downward wave C from $1,959.01.

The bounce on Feb. 5 is classified as a pullback towards$1,805. Eventually, the metal may break this level and fall to$1,769.
