Price Action – Gold Forms Engulfing Bar followed by Inside Bar | Oct. 24th

Gold
Getting hammered every which way but loose, Gold continues its sell-off and is now barely holding above the $1700 figure.   I am noticing how the buybacks have been getting shorter and weaker in angle each time.  This would generally indicate a weakening buying or counter-trend presence.  But that has also been accompanied by weaker sell-offs each time, with the latest being the weakest.  This culminated in a large engulfing bar followed by an inside bar.

Perhaps now that most paper bulls are flushed out, the market will start to climb.  If not, then aggressive selling should resume in the absence of paper longs.  Bears can watch for intraday price action pullbacks towards $1713 and $1730 for areas to sell, while bulls can look towards $1697 and $1665 before adding longs.  Short term its still bearish, but I suspect the current down-leg is weakening.
