The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) presents a value of 0.984 against a signal line at 4.981, suggesting that the downward momentum may not be strongly established yet. The 50-day and 200-day Exponential Moving Averages (EMAs) are currently converging around the $2,050 level, offering a critical juncture for the metal's price movements.

A symmetrical triangle pattern is observed, extending resistance at the $2,060 mark. This formation indicates that a break below this level could lead to increased selling pressure.

In conclusion, the overall short-term trend for Gold appears to be leaning towards a bearish outlook.
