The resistance levels around 103.60 points succeeded in stopping the US dollar index’s upward push, bouncing down from it at the end of yesterday’s trading sessions, trading Now near the support levels around 103.30.

Technically, gold is trading above the 100-hour moving average, after buyers succeeded in breaching $1974.25 levels. We expect the bullish trend to continue until $1988 near the 200-hour moving average, provided it continues above the current support at $1974 and $1970.

The Dow Jones industrial index declined during yesterday’s trading, as we mentioned, to stop this decline around the support level 33050 points, which represents the third test for these levels, which are the strongest levels in stopping the price’s bullishness in the medium term.
