Micro Analysis

09 January, 2020

Technical Outlook

From a technical perspective, Gold looks set to extend its downward correction as the Weekly Chart below points to an RSI Divergence Pattern. RSI Divergence forms when the price goes up and forms higher highs, and at the same time RSI (Relative Strength Index) goes down and forms lower highs. This pattern forms at the top of the bull markets (uptrends), and is known as a strong reversal pattern, and usually the price changes its direction and goes down when RSI Divergence forms.

If Gold succumbs to this pattern, and moreover, if gold remains below its Pivot of 1550.00, we can expect Gold to extend its declines down to Support 1 of 1510.00 and Support 2 of 1475.00 in extension.

If, however, the RSI Divergence pattern proves wrong and instead the Gold price moves up higher to reach new highs, we can then expect Gold to target Resistance 1 of 1589.00 and Resistance 2 of 1620.00 in extension.
