Gold’s rally proves short-lived as it falls $40

golden head and shoulders

Today’s external downside reversal in gold prices revives some concerns on the chart.

Gold appears to be forming a head-and-shoulders high over the past two months, in a move that would target $2,150. However, yesterday the bulls took action and attempted to take out the late May highs. This failed and today the sellers came back in force, pushing it down $40 to $2,318.

While this trend isn’t exactly textbook, it’s a head-and-shoulders high that comes after some data showing the U.S. services sector isn’t slowing down. In fact, S&P Global’s Services PMI reached its highest level in 26 months.

This could prevent the Fed from cutting rates this year and lead to aggressive profit-taking in gold.
