Key quotes

“Gold is attempting to recover but will find initial resistance at 1814 (near-term resistance line) and the 200-day ma at 1862. Currently, we suspect that it is trying to reassert its up move – more work is needed.” 

“Below 1760 would leave the market under pressure and attention on the 1670 June low. The 2019-2021 support line lies at 1650.” 

“Initial resistance is offered by the band of moving average resistance at 1850/62. Above here lies 1906, the 21st December high, ahead of the November and September highs at 1965.84/1973.8. This remains the barrier to the 78.6% retracement at 2006.”
