Gold price appears well set to print the first weekly loss in three as it defends the previous Friday’s U-turn from a key resistance line below the important Exponential Moving Averages (EMAs). However, the 50-EMA pierces the 200-EMA from below and prints a “Golden Cross” bullish moving average crossover suggesting a corrective bounce in prices. Additionally, the RSI (14) also rebounds from the oversold territory and hence increases the odds of witnessing a corrective bounce towards the EMA convergence surrounding $1,930. Following that, the 50% Fibonacci retracement of the July-August downturn, near $1,937, may please the XAUUSD buyers before testing them with a seven-week-old descending resistance line surrounding $1,950. Adding strength to the stated trend line resistance is the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement, also known as the “Golden Fibonacci Ratio”.
Meanwhile, the Gold buyer’s failure to defend Thursday’s corrective bounce needs to break $1,915 support to recall the sellers. Even so, a horizontal area comprising multiple levels marked since late June, close to $1,900, appears a tough nut to crack for the XAUUSD bears afterward. It should be observed, though, that a clear downside break of $1,900 won’t hesitate to challenge the previous monthly low of around $1,884 while targeting the early March swing high of around $1,858 and then to the yearly bottom of $1,804, quickly followed by the $1,800 round figure.
To sum up, the Gold price remains on the bear’s radar despite the latest recovery.
