The precious metal is trading somewhat bullish as it attempts to recover the losses from the previous two sessions.
However, the intraday charts show a consistent lower high forming, alongside lower lowers.
This is indicative of a downtrend that is not that significant just yet. For now, prices are back above the 1717.65 level.
A breakdown here could see price slipping to previous lows of 1696.86.
Only a strong close below this level will confirm further downside which could come around the 1671.95 level.
