Gold Price - Off 20-1/2 week low, but 1H 50-MA caps recovery

London (Dec 12)  Gold's recovery from the low of $1240 has run of out of steam near the 1-hour 50-MA despite flat action in the dollar index.

As of writing, the yellow metal is at $1243 levels; down 0.20 percent on the day.

The metal has been steadily losing altitude since late November, which indicates the markets may have priced-in the Fed rate hike. Consequently, gold may regain the bid tone following the rate hike announcement (buy the fact).

However, a hawkish dot chart (interest rate forecast) could yield another leg lower in the yellow metal. As for today, the US Nov. producer price index (PPI) may not have a big impact on the yields and gold.
