Gold Price reverses the post-US inflation retreat from a two-week high as market players await more consumer-centric details on early Friday. In doing so, the XAUUSD bounces off 100-SMA and justifies the firmer RSI (14) line. However, bearish MACD signals will join a two-month-old horizontal resistance area surrounding $1,880-85 to provide a tough fight to the metal buyers. Following that, a convergence of the 200-SMA and 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the September-October downside, near the $1,900 round figure, will be the final defense of the bears before giving control to the bulls.
Meanwhile, stronger US data may drag the Gold price beneath the 100-SMA support of around $1,869, which in turn highlights the $1,860 and $1,855 as the following barriers for the XAUUSD bears. In a case where the bullion prices remain weak past $1,855, the $1,830 and the latest bottom of around $1,810 could test the commodity sellers ahead of the $1,800 psychological magnet. It’s worth mentioning that the metal’s sustained decline below the $1,800 threshold will make it vulnerable to test the late December 2022 swing low of around $1,770.
Overall, the Gold price slips off the bear’s radar and braces for the first weekly gain in three but the buyers need to remain cautious unless the metal stays beneath the $1,900 resistance.
