Considering the sentiment, gold will likely break lower because there is no real demand in spot gold after declining of $30 per ounce last week.
Gold, like many other commodities this year, has been a victim of supply and demand. Gold is still inline to retest the lows of $1,179 per ounce.
Silver broke through a daily triangle pattern and has drifted lower ever since. Silver is in overbought territory, but it’s also in overly-bearish territory. Look for gold’s little brother to trade down to price action support at $19 per ounce. An upside pullback is likely to be caped at $20.04 per ounce.

Given that is pattern constitutes a larger timeframe, platinum very well could rebound to $1,398 per ounce. However, a close below these levels with signal further downward movement to $1,360 and potentially $1,330 per ounce.
