Gold price seesaws around the top line of a five-month-old bullish channel, recently supported by the 10-day EMA. It’s worth noting, however, that the smaller gap towards the north joins descending RSI (14) line and easing bullish bias of the MACD signals to keep XAUUSD sellers hopeful. However, a clear downside break of the 10-day EMA, around $1,955 by the press time, becomes necessary to convince intraday sellers. Even so, the $1,900 round figure and a horizontal area comprising multiple levels marked since early February, near $1,860, could restrict the metal’s further downside. In a case where the commodity remains bearish past $1,860, the stated channel’s lower line and the 200-day EMA, respectively near $1,841 and $1,825, act as the last defense of the buyers.
On the contrary, the $2,000 psychological magnet keeps restricting the short-term upside of the Gold price, a break of which could push XAUUSD bulls towards the 61.8% Fibonacci Extension of the metal’s moves between November 2022 and late February 2023, close to $2,017. Should the precious metal remains firmer past $2,017, the aforementioned channel’s resistance line, close to $2,021, may become the only hurdle between the bulls and the previous yearly top surrounding $2,070.
Overall, the Gold price stays inside a bullish chart formation despite having limited room towards the north.
