Gold eyes first weekly loss in four but bulls stay hopeful beyond $2,010

Gold eyes first weekly loss in four but bulls stay hopeful beyond $2,010

Gold price stays defensive while keeping the previous day’s recovery within a seven-week-old ascending triangle, floating above 100-SMA during early Friday. In doing so, XAUUSD braces for the first weekly loss in four. However, a steady RSI (14) line and an impending bull cross on the MACD suggest a continuation of the latest rebound, which in turn highlights a one-week-old falling resistance line, around $2,067 at the latest. Following that, the $2,090 level comprising the stated triangle’s top line will be crucial to watch as the metal’s sustained trading beyond the same will allow the metal buyers to challenge the all-time high marked during late 2023.

Meanwhile, the 100-SMA level surrounding $2,040 restricts the immediate downside of the Gold Price. However, the XAUUSD sellers remain off that table unless the commodity slides beneath the aforementioned triangle’s bottom line, close to $2,010 at the latest. Should the quote remain bearish past $2,010, the $2,000 threshold may test the sellers before directing them to the previous monthly low of around $1,973. In a case where the bears keep the reins past $1,973, the mid-November swing low of nearly $1,931 should gain the market’s attention.

Overall, the Gold price is likely to remain sluggish, slightly positive, but a surprise fall beneath the $2,010 won’t hesitate to welcome bears.
