The dollar is weakening and has recovered to the $24,000 level.
Gold broke through USD 1,900.00 and was rising higher and higher due to risk aversion, but the RSI shows that it is sticking around 70 and the upward momentum is weakening. The possibility of a one-time adjustment cannot be ruled out. There is a possibility that the price may fall back to USD 1900.00 on profit-taking. Today’s range forecast is USD 1892.00 – USD 1931.00.
|Estimated range||USD 1,892.00 – USD 1,931.00|
|Resistance line||USD 1,921.00|
|Support line||USD 1,902.00|
