Gold braces for the first weekly gain in five while bouncing off the multi-month low marked earlier in the week, piercing the 200-DMA of late. The upside bias gains credence from a looming bull-cross on the MACD, as well as a recovery in the RSI (14) line from the oversold territory. However, a nine-month-old previous support line, close to $1,950, precedes a downward-sloping resistance line from early May, around $1,955 at the latest, to restrict the short-term upside of the XAUUSD. Also acting as a barrier towards the north is a three-month-old horizontal resistance area surrounding the $1,985 and the $2,000 psychological magnet. In a case where the metal remains firmer past $2,000, the yearly high of around $2,067 will be in the spotlight.
On the flip side, the recent low of around $1,885 holds the key to the Gold seller’s entry. Following that, the early-March swing high of near $1,858 and the YTD bottom around $1,804, quickly followed by the $1,800 threshold, will challenge the XAUUSD bears. Should there be a sustained downtrend of the bullion past $1,800, the November 2022 peak of around $1,767 will act as the final defense of the buyers.
Overall, the Gold Price is likely to recover but the reversal of the multi-day-old bearish trend is still unclear to predict.
