Gold retraces a Fibo 38.2%

Daily candlestick chart. Gold has retraced a Fibo 38.2% of the September decline, and is testing possible resistance from the high of September 27 - the previous high of the somewhat anaemic rally from the September low. The trend is down at this time frame, but still up on the weekly and monthly and monthly charts. A move below the September lows would be required to indicate a change of trend on the weekly charts. If (if!) Gold rolls over lower from current levels or near the 18 day moving average, that would be an early indication that the September low could be tested.
