Primary wave C will complete the last leg of what is an expanded flat structure so the current sell off in XAUUSD is far from over.
The move on the 1hr tf and is shaping up so far as an (which is acceptable for the wC of an expanding flat).
POI= Point of invalidation (I do not want to see price action close above this price)= $1339.15
The key areas to watch are between 1327.85 and 1331.35 as I have indicated on the chart. If price action holds in this region, then w5 is next to complete an intermediate w1 move for the current sell off in XAUUSD .
A projection of the termination point of w5 is based on 61.8 % of the move using wave 1 to w3 to 1331.45 (possible termination area for w4) which = ~$1297.49. Some people might go for the 100% projection of w1 to w3 added to the termination point of w4 but I like to be conservative. Assuming figure stays as mentioned above,
RISK on the trade = 1339.15 - 1331.35 = 7.8
REWARD= 1331.35 - 1297.49 = 33.86 RISK/REWARD ratio = 33.86/7.8 = ~4.3: 1
