    FXStreet (Mumbai) - Gold prices are witnessing marginal gains ahead of the data in the US, which could show the cost of living stalled in November.

    Rejected at hourly 50-MA

    Prices witnessed a minor spike an hour ago, which ran out of steam at the hourly 50-MA at USD 1068.75/Oz levels. The weakness in the USD index could have helped the metal rise, however, caution ahead of the FOMC rate decision is restricting gains in the metal.

    The immediate focus is now on the monthly CPI figure in the US. The traders would be interested to see if the core inflation is holding up well amid oil-driven weakness in the headline CPI figure.

    Gold Technical Levels

    At USD 1066/Oz, the immediate resistance is seen at 1068.75 (hourly 50-MA), above which the pair could rise to 1071.20 (hourly 200-MA). On the other hand, a break below the support at 1058.41 (daily low) would expose 1046.18 (Dec 3 low).
