Supply: Trading View
- Take note, the detrimental slope within the 200-Day SMA ($1794) signifies that the broader pattern for bullion stays tilted to the draw back, with a ‘loss of life cross’ formation taking form in August because the Relative Strength Index (RSI) pushed into oversold territory.
- Nevertheless, lack of momentum to check the March low ($1677) generated a textbook purchase sign within the RSI because the oscillator climbed again above 30, with rebound from the August low ($1682) pushing the value of gold briefly above the 200-Day SMA ($1794) going into September.
- An identical dynamic seems to be taking form this month because the current transfer above the shifting common was short-lived, and failure to shut above the $1786 (38.2% growth) area might push the value of gold again in the direction of the month-to-month low ($1746), with a break/shut under the Fibonacci overlap round $1743 (23.6% growth) to $1763 (50% retracement) bringing the September low ($1722) on the radar.
- Nonetheless, a shut above the $1786 (38.2% growth) area might push the value of gold again above the 200-Day SMA ($1794) for one more run on the $1816 (61.8% growth) to $1822 (50% growth) space.
