In this case, USD could pick up a strong bid, pushing gold below the 50-month MA of $1,235. The yellow metal has already witnessed a long-run bearish revival last week. Further, strong demand for gold puts indicates the investors are likely expecting Powell to sound hawkish and hence are seeking downside protection (put options). 

That said, signs of short-term bearish exhaustion around $1,238 seen on the hourly chart indicate scope for a minor corrective rally.
