Looking at the medium-term wave structure, Gold has been dropping since $1965 as seen on the 4H chart presented. The wave counts suggest a larger degree Wave 1, 2 and 3 might be in place around $1802, $1876 and $1676 lows registered yesterday respectively.
Immediate resistance is seen around $1816/17, followed by $1876 and higher, while support remains intact at yesterday’s low for now ($1676). Short-term resistance has seen around $1713/15 mark and a break there would be encouraging for further bullish setup.

Gold remains a good candidate to be sold on rallies through $1750/60 zone. Only a consistent break above the trend line and subsequently towards $1820 and $1876 will change the bearish structure. It is safe to look for resistance to sell at the moment.
