The election result, when we get it, is likely to be gold-friendly with a likely weakening dollar, fresh stimulus, rates in negative territory and a likelihood that the Fed will start buying longer term assets
The three possibilities might create more of a slow positive churn for the gold spot price. A Republican victory is also positive for gold because of the continued trade wars, budget deficits, and geopolitical uncertainty. On the other hand, a divided Congress or a contested election will probably spark civil unrest. Civil unrest is always a trigger for safe-haven assets, mostly precious metals. So as we look to the election, keep in mind all these factors contribute to a positive growth environment no matter the outcome. This is often the case for the gold price with elections.

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 78.8476. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a sell 21 period(s) ago.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 49.74. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a sell 61 period(s) ago.
Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
