Gold traders remained focused on the chances of an agreement on a stimulus package as November’s election fast approaches. US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she is not giving up on passing another coronavirus relief economic package before the November 3 election. Pelosi says she sent the administration a list of concerns on Friday and she is told that she’ll have answers on Monday.
The dollar index was up 0.16% against a basket of currencies, putting pressure on gold. The dollar was stronger as rising virus cases and lack of progress towards a U.S. stimulus package put traders in a cautious mood.
“Gold continues to trade within recent range. The dollar index managed to note modest gains gaining support from worsening outlook for European economies amid rising virus cases and mixed economic numbers,” Shayne Heffernan, CEO and Founder of Heffx said in a note.
“While trend in US dollar has been the major price determining factor for gold, the metal remains supported by safe haven buying amid increasing challenges to global economy in form of rising virus cases, uneven recovery, US-China tensions and uncertainty relating to US elections,” he added.

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 31.2780. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a sell 15 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 50.43. 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 55 period(s) ago.
Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is 5. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a sell 3 period(s) ago.
