Technical analysis

Gold prices edged lower near support levels which coincides with the September lows at 1,848. Resistance is seen near the 10-day moving average at 1,895 and then the 50-day moving average at 1,908. Short-term momentum is negative as the fast stochastic generated a crossover sell signal. The fast stochastic has accelerated lower and is currently printing a reading of 15, below the oversold trigger level of 20 which could foreshadow a correction. Medium-term momentum has turned negative as the MACD (moving average convergence divergence) index generated a crossover sell signal. This occurs as the MACD line (the 12-day moving average minus the 26-day moving average) crosses below the MACD signal line (the 9-day moving average of the MACD line).

EU officials have reached a compromise on the size of its next seven-year budget. Last week, there was a compromise additionally.  Together, these two agreements will account for EUR1.8 trillion of spending, with EUR750 billion earmarked for the recovery fund.
