Gold: Next support at $1,721
Gold prices fell on Wednesday to levels last seen in September 2021, near $1,730 per troy ounce The sharp pullback came amid a surge in open interest, leaving the open door to further decline in the very short term. However, the sharp decline in volume coupled with oversold levels could favor a technical bounce. The next level to watch on the downside comes at the September 2021 low at $1,721 (September 29th).
