Gold price bounces off a one-week-old rising support line, as well as the 200-SMA, within a symmetrical triangle comprising levels marked since late July. Given the near-50.0 levels of the RSI and the impending bull cross on the MACD, the XAUUSD is likely to extend the latest rebound. The same highlights the 50% Fibonacci retracement of its July-August downside, near $1,937, ahead of shifting the market’s attention to the stated triangle’s top line, close to $1,947 at the latest. In a case where the bullion price remains firmer past $1,947, the monthly high of around $1,953 will act as the final defense of the bears.
On the flip side, the 200-SMA and an ascending support line from the previous week limit the immediate downside of the Gold price near $1,918 and $1,916 respectively. Following that, the triangle’s lower line surrounding $1,906 and the $1,900 will be crucial to watch for the XAUUSD bears. In a case where the metal remains bearish past $1,900, the odds of witnessing a slump toward July’s low of $1,885 can’t be ruled out.
Overall, the Gold Price is likely to remain sidelined within the aforementioned triangle but advocates more volatility ahead.
