Gold (XAU/USD) has seen a modest decline in the early trading hours of January 8th, with its price dropping by 0.45% to $2,036. The precious metal is navigating a complex technical landscape, reflected in various technical indicators and chart patterns on a four-hour timeframe.

The pivot point for gold currently stands at $2,050, serving as a crucial marker for its short-term direction. Resistance levels are observed at $2,075, $2,104, and $2,104. These levels are essential as they represent potential ceilings that gold needs to breach to sustain an upward momentum.

Conversely, gold finds immediate support at $1,995, followed by $1,965 and $1,937. These support levels play a critical role in preventing further declines in the gold price. A breach below these levels could signal a more profound bearish trend.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) for gold stands at 39, indicating a bearish sentiment without entering the oversold territory. This suggests that the market is leaning towards caution. Additionally, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) value of -5.001, crossing below the signal line, also supports a bearish outlook.

Traders and investors might consider a sell position below this mark, with a take-profit target at $2,017 and a stop loss at $2,055.
