  • Gold consolidates the biggest losses in two weeks.
  • MACD teases bulls, key HMA limits immediate downside.
  • 100-HMA, nearby resistance line probe corrective pullback moves.

Gold picks up bids around $1,841, up 0.20% intraday, during early Thursday. The yellow metal marked the heaviest losses since November 23 the previous day but 200-HMA triggered the much-awaited bounce.

The U-turn gains support from the receding strength of negative MACD signals to suggest further upside towards 100-HMA, at $1,851 now.

However, a downward sloping trend line from Tuesday, near $1,858 now, will challenge gold buyers ahead of highlighting the recent top surrounding $1,875 on their radars.

Meanwhile, a downside break of 200-HMA, currently around $1,828, will direct the commodity sellers towards 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of November 30 to December 08 upside, near $1,807.

In a case where the bullion bears get more interested in the quote below $1,807, they need to conquer the $1,800 round-figure for further governance.
