Gold prices finished at 8-year highs and continue to accelerate higher. Target resistance is now seen near the August 2011 all-time highs at 1,912. Support is seen near the 10-day moving average near 1,833. Medium-term momentum has reversed and turned positive as the MACD (moving average convergence divergence) histogram is printing in the black with an upward sloping trajectory points to higher prices. Short-term momentum has turned negative as the fast stochastic generated a crossover sell signal. The fast-stochastic is printing a reading of 94 above the overbought trigger level of 80, which could foreshadow a correction. The RSI also surged higher reflecting accelerating positive momentum and is printing a reading of 80, above the overbought trigger level of 70 which could foreshadow a correction.
