Is Momentum Changing for Gold? Price Just Crossed Above Its 20 Day Moving Average

The Daily View for Gold

  • At the time of this writing, XAUUSD’s price is down $-9.7 (-0.55%) from the day prior.

The moving averages on the daily timeframe suggest a choppiness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a mixed alignment — meaning the trend across timeframes is inconsistent, indicating a potential opportunity for rangebound traders.
  • Divergence between XAUUSD’s price and its RSI may be manifesting. As such, be on the lookout for trend reversal in XAUUSD’s price.
