Technical Analysis

Author: Greg Michalowski | gold

Up $16.50 on the day.  Looks toward trend line resistance

The dollars decline (trading at near the lowest level since 2015) has gold moving higher.  


The price of gold is trading up about $16.50 or 0.60% at $1338.72.  The price traded as low as $1308 on Wednesday. 

The move higher has the precious metal looking toward a topside trend line at $1344.36. The high price from 2017 was up at $1357.

Per an earlier post , the dollar index is testing the lowest level since 2015.  A move below that level would be more bearish technically for the greenback. That could spell more upside for the price of gold too.  Be aware.
