Technical analysis

Gold prices rebounded on Monday, recapturing resistance, which is now support near the 10-day moving average at 1,845.  Resistance is seen near the 50-day moving average at 1,879. Short-term momentum has turned positive as the fast stochastic generated a crossover buy signal and continues to accelerate higher. Medium-term momentum has turned positive as the MACD (moving average convergence divergence) index is poised to create a crossover buy signal. This occurs as the MACD line (the 12-day moving average minus the 26-day moving average) crosses above the MACD signal line (the 9-day moving average of the MACD line).

The Trump administration looks set to continue its fight against China in its final days. Reports suggest that a new list of sanctions levied 12 Chinese individuals could be released soon. This list is said to include several high-ranking officials that are being targeted for their role in the recent issues surrounding Hong Kong.
