(Kitco News) - The gold price remains in full consolidation mode at the moment. The price is trading around 0.09% higher on Friday during the European and Asian sessions. On the 4-hour futures chart below, the price has been making lower highs but the previous wave low of $1806/oz remains fully intact.

In terms of the volume profile, the price is currently below the volume point of control red horizontal line. This is a slightly bearish signal and the line could act as resistance if the price does move higher. On the downside, the two major supports are $1806/oz and $1785/oz.

On the upside, the price looks very congested. $1840/oz look very stick and the price has had many touches at that price point. The strongest resistance zone is at the black horizontal line at $1861.6/oz. For the bulls to take control of the market the consolidation high at $1882.5/oz is the level to break.
