Technical analysis

Gold prices moved higher but continue to enjoy a consolidative tone. Gold prices edged above resistance near the 10-day moving average at 1,906, which is now seen as support. Additional support is seen near the October lows at 1,872. Resistance is seen near the 50-day moving average at 1,919. Short-term momentum has whipsawed turning negative as the fast stochastic generated a crossover sell signal on the upper end of the neutral range. Medium-term momentum remains neutral as the MACD histogram prints in the black with a declining trajectory that points to consolidation.
