Bull flag challenges Gold sellers ahead of Fed Chair Powell’s speech

Bull flag challenges Gold sellers ahead of Fed Chair Powell’s speech

Gold price remains pressured at the lowest level in two weeks, down for the third consecutive day, as market players await Federal Reserve (Fed) Chairman Jerome Powell’s speech. That said, a downside break of the 100-SMA joins the bearish MACD signals to keep the XAUUSD bears hopeful. However, a bull flag chart formation defends the commodity buyers unless the quote stays beyond the $1,960 level comprising the stated flag’s lower line. In a case where the bullion prices remain weak past $1,960, the 200-SMA level surrounding $1,921 will act as the final defense for the buyers.

On the contrary, the Gold Price recovery needs validation from the 100-SMA level of around $1,975. However, a confirmation of the next bull run could only be made if the XAUUSD manages to defy the short-term bearish channel pattern, forming part of the bull flag, by crossing the $2,000 round figure. Even so, the monthly high of around $2,010 and the $2,050 round figure might test the commodity’s upside before pushing them toward the yearly peak of $2,067.

Overall, the Gold fades bullish momentum ahead of the week’s key event. However, the chart formation can surprise the markets with a fresh run-up if Powell advocates one more rate hike in 2023.
