Daily Price Outlook

- Gold price faces resistance at $2,410 with further barriers at $2,432 and $2,454; pivotal support starts at $2,334.

- Current RSI at 54 suggests neutral momentum; 50 EMA at $2,352 indicates underlying medium-term bullish trends.

- Recommended trading strategy: Sell below $2,390, targeting $2,350 with a stop loss at $2,410 to manage risk.

On April 17, gold prices observed a slight decline, settling at $2,377.20, down 0.31% from the previous trading session. The precious metal is currently trading below its pivot point of $2,389, signaling a cautious sentiment among investors. Technical resistance levels are set at $2,410, $2,432, and $2,454, which gold would need to surpass to regain a bullish stance. However, immediate support levels loom at $2,334, followed by $2,305 and $2,277, which could come into play if downward pressure continues.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) stands at 54, indicating a neutral market momentum, neither overbought nor oversold at this juncture. Meanwhile, the 50-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) at $2,352 supports the notion of a medium-term upward trend in gold prices. This is reinforced by the positioning of the 200 EMA, suggesting a sustained bullish sentiment over a longer period.

Given the current market setup, traders might consider a strategic approach: entering a sell position if gold prices fall below $2,390, aiming for a take profit at around $2,350, with a stop loss set at $2,410.
