Technical Analysis: Gold
Gold rose to a seven-year high of 1765 yesterday and then dashed higher and then fell back to the 1725 position after a continuous decline. Today opened at 1729.48 and is currently moving up in a narrow range at 1735. The price is currently in the consolidation phase, and no market signal appears.
On the 1-hour chart, the price climbed slowly and narrowly after reaching the lower trajectory of the Bollinger Bands, and it is in a callback trend. It is more likely to maintain a volatile upward trend during the day. MACD still shows a more obvious decline. Due to the fierce downward trend at night, MACD needs enough kinetic energy to pull back. Pay attention to the position of DIF line and zero axis during the day.
Day trade strategy: light long position, pay attention to the callback again.
Resistance: 1735 1740 1750
Support: 1720 1710 1700
