    Gold Price Futures Technical Analysis

    Abstract:Gold futures are edging lower early Monday.

      Gold futures are edging lower early Monday after giving back more than half of its gains the previous session on U.S. Federal Reserve chief Jerome Powells comments that inflation could ease next year and the central bank was on track to start tapering its stimulus.

      On Friday, gold futures rallied to their highest level since September 7 before trimming gains on Fed Chairman Jerome Powells comments on tapering. The price action suggests weak sellers were taken out on the move since there is little evidence of new buying.

      Buyers are being cautious which means they arent likely to chase the market higher. During the current rally, they seem to be more inclined to buy dips.
