XAU/USD (a 4-hour chart)

General overview

Gold stayed bullish heading into Trump’s new conference scheduled later on the day.

Current situation

Gold maintained its bid tone trading in the green zone on Wednesday. The upmove, however, lacked momentum around 1190 where the precious metal faced sellers' resistance. The 4 hours chart showed that the price continued developing well above the moving averages. The 50 and the 100-EMAs pointed higher while the 200-EMA remained flat. The resistance exists at 1190, the support stands at 1180 dollars per ounce.

MACD remained at the same level which confirmed the strength of buyers. RSI indicator consolidated within undervalued territory.

Trading recommendations

We consider a possible correction towards the support 1180. Should the metal breaks the level down the pair may extend its losses towards 1170 dollars per ounce.
