Gold fell to test the $2156.2 swing low, smaller than (0.618) target of the wave down from $2203, and 21 percent retracement of the rise from $1996.4 today. These levels around $2156 held on a closing basis. Even so, waves that meet their smaller than target typically extend to at least the equal to (1.00) target, in this case, $2139. The move down is likely a correction, but near-term odds lean in favor of testing $2139 before the move up continues. Taking out $2156 will increase the odds for such a move within the next few days.

Nevertheless, the pullback from $2203 may be in the process of forming a flat descending triangle. This is a continuation pattern and would be bullish for the outlook given $2156 continues to hold. Should gold rise above $2175 early tomorrow look for a test of the $2185.6 swing high. Settling above this would confirm a break higher and put near-term odds in favor of reaching $2205 and higher in the coming days.
