Gold price has found buyers once again near the mildly bullish 21-Daily Moving Average (DMA) at $1,772, prompting a tepid bounce toward the bearish 200DMA at $1,787. A sustained break above the latter is needed to extend the recovery momentum toward the $1,800 level. The next upside target is envisioned at the previous day’s high of $1,809.
The 14-day Relative Strength Index (RSI) is inching slightly higher while above the midline, suggesting that there is more room for recovery. Adding credence to the bullish potential, the upward-sloping 50DMA is set to cut the flattish 100DMA from below, which if materialized on a daily closing baiss will confirm a Bull Cross.
On the flip side, daily closing below the 21DMA support is critical to negate the bullish thesis. A sharp drop toward the previous week’s low at $1,766 will be on cards, if Gold bears flex their muscles below the 21DMA. Further south, the November-end lows near $1,740 could be on Gold sellers’ radars.
