Gold could re-test the 200-day SMA near $1,850

Gold prices edges higher at the beginning of the week, extending the rebound from Friday’s 2021 lows near $1,780. The move, however, was on the back of shrinking open interest and volume and hints at the idea that a correction lower could be in the offing. That said, the precious metal is expected to falter around the key 200-day SMA just above $1,850 per ounce troy.
