Gold Price Technical Analysis
The US dollar bulls remained in action against gold, as there was a decline in gold price below $1180. It looks like the price is now forming a support for a possible upside recovery.
If we have a look at the daily chart of gold price versus the US Dollar, we can clearly see a decline from the $1337 high to $1157 low. The price started gaining bids near the $1160 support and slightly moved higher.
There is also a possibility that the price is forming a consolidation phase before buyers make an attempt to take the price higher. A break above the highlighted bearish trend line on the daily chart is needed for more gains.
Chinese Consumer Price Index
Today in China, there was a major risk event, as the Consumer Price Index, which is a measure of retail price variations within a representative basket of goods and services was released by the National Bureau of Statistics of China.
The market was aligned for an increase of about 0.1% in Nov 2016, compared with the previous month. The result was in line with the forecast, as there was a rise of 0.1% in the CPI.
When we have a look at the yearly change, then the CPI increased 2.3% in Nov 2016, compared with the same month a year ago. It was better compared with the forecast of 2.2%.
US Wholesale Inventories
Today in the US, there is no high-risk event. The only economic release to watch out will be the Wholesale Inventories by the US Census Bureau. The forecast is of a 0.4% decline in Oct 2016. If the result fails to impress, then there is a chance of Gold price moving a few points higher.
