    The resistance is identified as the 38.2 per cent retracement of the downtrend from the January 8 high of $1,610.90 to $1,535.63. The metal could be consolidating in a range of $1,547-$1,564.

    Signals will remain rather mixed until the metal gets out of the range. A break below $1,547 could confirm the continuation of the downtrend from $1,610.90, while a break above $1,564 could signal the extension of the bounce from $1,535.63.
