    In the international market, gold prices were little changed on Thursday as investors maintained a cautious stance amid signs of a delay in Washington and Beijing signing a long-awaited interim trade deal.

    Spot gold was trading at $1,491.27 per ounce, as of 0337 GMT, while US gold futures were flat at $1,492.9 per ounce, reported Reuters.

    According to technical analysis, spot gold may retest support at $1,482 per ounce, a break below which could cause a fall to the Oct. 1 low of $1,458.50, said a Reuters analyst.

    The support is identified as the 23.6% retracement of the downtrend from $1,557 to $1,458.80. It triggered a bounce which is classified as a pullback towards a wedge.

    The pullback may end around $1,497, to be followed by a drop towards $1,482. A break above $1,497 could make the wedge invalid, and a bullish target zone of $1,508-$1,519 will be established then.
