Gold technical outlook
Despite the recovery witnessed in the second half of the week, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) indicator on the daily chart stays below 50, pointing out to a neutral outlook in the near-term. On the upside, $1,900 (50-day SMA, 100-day SMA, Fibonacci 50% retracement of the June-August uptrend) aligns as a key resistance. With a daily close above that level, gold could target $1,930 (Fibonacci 38.2% retracement).
On the other hand, strong support seems to have formed at $1,850 (Fibonacci 61.8% retracement). If the price drops below that level and flips it as a resistance, $1,820 (former static resistance) could be targeted.
