Gold Technical Analysis: Bears take the lead and drive the Yellow Metal to $1,183.00 support

  • Gold bears are at work resuming the main bear trend.
  • Gold is currently testing $1,182.90 (August 24 low) as the RSI, MACD and Stochastics indicators are weakening, suggesting that further losses below the level can be around the corner. A sustained break below 1,182.90 would open the door for 1,172.82 (current 2018 low) and 1,145.20 (March, 1 2017 low). 
  • However, a bull breakout above 1,204.10 (August 3 swing low, key level) would likely invalidate the current bearish momentum
