From a technical point of view, spot gold posted a rebound from $1,848 after breaking a symmetric triangle on a daily chart. Currently, gold prices are trading below the declining 20-day moving average. The relative strength index is also below its neutrality level at 50, suggesting the lack of upward momentum.

Bearish readers could set the resistance level at $1,935, while support levels would be located at $1,848 and $1,815 respectively.
