Price is at the base of the 5-6 weeks channel just below 1200. A drop to 1180 is very much likely to follow before 1160. From 1243, we started a new bearish impulse wave which is expected to be the 5th wave of wave C of the long term flat pattern.

Gold Intraday Elliott Wave Analysis, 30 Mins
Price moved exactly as expected – dropped away from 1212 without a heavy retesting. The current dip should continue to 1190-1180 before a retest of 1200 or 1212. The next bearish targets are 1180 and 1160 after the a bullish correction which is expected to be limited below 1212 ends. A bullish spike above 1212 might not be too good for the bears.
