Gold prices continued to slide moving lower on Monday for the third consecutive trading session. Resistance is seen near the 10-day moving average at 1,529.

The fast stochastic is accelerating to the downside reflecting increasing negative momentum. Medium-term momentum is negative as the MACD histogram is printing in the red with a downward sloping trajectory which points to lower prices.

China Reports Weak Trade Data

China reported weaker August trade data.  According to the ministry of finance. exports contracted -1% year over year versus the 2.2% rise that was expected. Imports into China contracted -5.6% year over year versus expectations that they would fall by -6.4%.  Some reports suggest the weak data seen so far for August will lead the PBOC to add more stimulus.  The PBOC last week reduced regulatory requirements which is a subtle way of adding stimulus.  The Chinese central bank is likely to wait to see how the banking system reacts to this latest cut before easing again.
