Gold - Potential selling opportunity setup

OANDA:XAUUSD   Gold Spot / U.S. Dollar
Taking a look at the 1 Hour chart on Gold , it has gone through a sharp drop since breaking its record highs above the $2000 level.

Currently now the price in Gold has pulled back higher from its sharp recent fall and is trading in an ascending channel .

This Channel has completed a potential larger 3 drive bearish pattern in the process. Why we like this pattern is that it has convergences at the 3rd drive high which also lines up with the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement .

This current high is starting to look like there is a bit of price exhaustion just below the $2000 level as well.

What we want to see is price start to breakdown on our lower time frames and locate any smaller bearish price patterns in the process to help confirm a possible move lower. We have also drawn a lower trend line as this can also increase the probability for a move lower and expose a good point of execution if this trend line gets broken to the downside for a possible retest entry short.

If the price in Gold starts to continue its rise and trades above the pattern and $2000 level no action needs to be taken.
Order cancelled: Gold has shown continued strength and traded higher above the $2000 level so there is no action to take and we avoid a losing trade. We can now move to the next opportunity.
