Gold Technical Analysis and Near-Term Outlook
The near-term outlook for gold remains bearish after holding resistance around $1898 and taking out the $1853.9 swing low today. The move down will likely be a grind for the interim, but the wave formations call for $1843. Settling below this will clear the way for $1825 and then the next major objective and probable stalling point at $1810.
Nonetheless, support around $1850 +/- $2 has been resilient since late September. The $1848.0 swing low held and today’s hammer suggests another test of resistance might take place first. Overcoming $1881 will call for key near-term resistance at $1900. Closing above $1900 would shift near-term odds in favor of $1920 and likely higher.
