Gold prices rebounded on Monday, forming a doji day and rejecting trend line support following Friday’s decline. This comes as the U.S. 10-year yield moved higher and the dollar rose, generating headwinds for the yellow metal. The House of Representatives is moving forward with a second impeachment of Donald Trump. Trump stewed over the weekend as Twitter and Facebook removed his accounts.

Gold prices rebounded, forming a doji day, which is a consolidating where the open and close are at the same level, which is a sign of indecision. Resistance, which is former support, is seen near the 50-day moving average near 1,868. Support is seen near an upward sloping trend line that comes in near 1,815. The 10-day moving average crossed above the 50-day moving average, which means a medium-term uptrend is now in place. Short-term momentum has turned negative as the fast stochastic generated a crossover sell signal. Medium-term momentum has turned negative as the MACD (moving average convergence divergence) line generated a crossover sell signal. This occurs as the MACD line (the 12-day moving average minus the 26-day moving average) crosses above the MACD signal line). The MACD histogram is printing in the red with a downward sloping trajectory which points to lower prices.
