As of January 18, Gold (XAU/USD) has shown a modest increase, trading at $2008, up by 0.09%. The chart analysis on a 4-hour timeframe indicates a pivot point at $1,993, with the metal facing immediate resistance at $2,021. Further resistance levels are seen at $2,042 and $2,069. On the support side, immediate backing is found at $1,972, followed by $1,950 and $1,930.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) stands at 33, suggesting that Gold may be entering an oversold territory. The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) presents a value of -3.61, with its signal line at -8.27. This could indicate a potential for downward momentum, although a cautious approach is warranted given the proximity to oversold conditions.

The 50-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) currently sits at $2,017, reinforcing the resistance area near the $2,021 level. The observed symmetrical triangle pattern in the chart suggests a strong selling pressure, yet the entry into the oversold zone offers a counterbalance.

The overall trend for Gold appears to be at a critical juncture. Investors might consider a buy limit at 2008, with a take profit target of 2030 and a stop loss set at 1996. Short-term, Gold is expected to test its immediate resistance levels, particularly if it can sustain a move beyond the pivot point of $1,993.
