Gold tested the 1800 level, consolidating its gains with the better than expected inflation report issued by the United States which may have indicated that inflation had reached its peak and began to decline. The Dollar fell after the report and Gold benefited from this decline by achieving gains to test 1800 .
The impact of the report quickly wore off, with recession fears from China and the People’s Bank of China cutting rates by 10 basis points prompting investors to rush to the Dollar, and Gold falling again to 1759, the support from August 3, 2022.

The long-term MACD indicates bullish momentum, although it shows the momentum is heading down, but this can be considered a correction to complete an upward path.
