Gold prices were flat on Wednesday as investors stayed cautious after a much-awaited speech by US President Donald Trump gave no details on the signing of a trade deal with China, while a firmer dollar dented demand for the safe-haven asset.
Spot gold was flat at $1,457.91 per ounce, as of 0116 GMT, while US gold futures were up 0.3 per cent at $1,458 per ounce, reported Reuters.
According to technical charts, spot gold may end its current weak bounce around a resistance at $1,466 per ounce and then resume its drop towards $1,440, said a Reuters analyst.
The resistance is identified as the 50 per cent projection level of a downward wave C from $1,515. On the daily chart, gold has broken a support at $1,463, the 23.6 per cent retracement on the uptrend from $1,159.96 to $1,557. It is pulling back towards this former support, now a resistance. The pullback may end around $1,463, which is near $1,466 on the hourly chart.
Based on this retracement analysis, the metal may fall to $1,405.
