The gold futures contract lost 1.71% on Wednesday, as it broke below $1,900 price level. It has also broken below its multi-week consolidation. In September the market was retracing a rally from around $1,800 to August 7 record high of $2,089.20 in reaction to U.S. dollar advance. Then gold has bounced from the support level marked by mid-August local low of around $1,875, as we can see on the daily chart ( the chart includes today’s intraday data ):
