After the breach of the bearish technical pattern shown above in addition to the ascending trend-line, the metal successfully and sharply breached the 200-days SMA hinting a retest of the major low at 1532.00 is just a matter of time. The main ascending trend-line or support is located very near to that low at 1532.00 while stochastic has dipped deep within oversold territory. Therefore, we expect the downside move to continue however our first possible stop will be 1530.00 areas.
