Gold 1-hour chart

Gold had been pushing higher in the session as a strong bout of risk aversion was noted on Thursday. The progress was blocked at the USD 1745.12 per troy ounce, a level which has been a strong resistance recently.

The move lower has now stalled at the 55 Exponential Moving Average marked in blue. Now there is a consolidation zone forming and the USD 1720.00 area could be a support level overnight in the Asian session.

The indicators are looking bearish with the Relative Strength Index dipping below the mid-line. The MACD histogram is firmly in the red while the signal lines look like they are crossing to the downside.
