Daily Price Outlook

Gold, the long-treasured asset and a typical hedge in times of financial uncertainty, is displaying some notable momentum as we delve into its 4-hourly technicals for October 18. As of the moment, gold is priced at $1938.51, marking an ascent of 0.79% in the past 24 hours.

The metal's immediate pivot point is set at $1932. On the upside, we're looking at a trio of resistances: $1950, $1967, and culminating at $1984. If gold were to retreat, potential supports are spotted at $1909, dropping further to $1886, and then possibly to $1869.

The RSI (Relative Strength Index) is clocking in at 72. This level, being above the standard 70 threshold, is typically interpreted as overbought conditions. However, it's essential to remember that assets can remain overbought (or oversold) for prolonged periods, especially in strongly trending markets. The MACD, another widely regarded indicator, is suggesting a bearish trend as its line is below the signal line. However, countering this bearish hint is gold's current price positioning above the 50 EMA (Exponential Moving Average) which stands at $1891, signaling a short-term bullish trend.

Chart patterns provide further insights into potential price movement, but for this analysis, no specific pattern has been mentioned. However, it's always advisable to observe for breakout or breakdown patterns, triangles, channels, or flags to make informed trading decisions.


Gold's technical structure hints at a bullish inclination, especially if prices sustain above the $1932 pivot point. In the short run, traders might anticipate gold to challenge the immediate resistance levels, especially given the prevailing bullish sentiment from the price's position relative to the 50 EMA. Nevertheless, monitoring the RSI for any potential reversal signals and keeping abreast of global macroeconomic news, especially those that typically impact gold prices, will be key for those trading this precious metal.
