Gold prices retreated from three week high

Gold prices retreated from three week high awaiting for vote on the American Health Care Act in the US Congress.

Current situation

Buyers attempt to reclaim 1250 dollars per ounce on Wednesday failed. The price just touched the level and immediately pulled back. The precious metal reached the 1245 in the night and stayed around the mark the first part of the day. According to 4 hours chart the gold price continued developing well above the moving averages. The 50-EMA crossed the 100-EMA upwards. The 50 and 200 EMAs maintained their bullish slope while the 100-EMA kept heading lower in the mentioned chart. The resistance is highlighted 1250, the support comes in at 1240 dollars per ounce.

MACD decreased which indicates the buyers’ positions weakening. The RSI indicator was near overvalued territory, favoring a new move higher.

Trading recommendations

All eyes are right now at the support level 1240 dollars per ounce. If buyers failed to break above the current resistance sellers will regain control. If buyers succeed to retake the hurdle out next level to focus on is 1250.
