Gold prices moved higher and bounced at support near the 100-day moving average at 1,847. Resistance is seen near the 10-day moving average at 1,909. The 10-day moving average crossed through the 50-day moving average which means a short-term downtrend is in place. 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). Short-term momentum has turned positive as the fast stochastic recently generated a crossover buy signal. The current reading on the fast stochastic is 15, below the oversold trigger level of 20 which could foreshadow a correction.
