Gold recovers from a seven-month-old amid an oversold RSI (14) and failure to break the weekly horizontal support surrounding $1,815. However, the 21-SMA upside hurdle surrounding $1,830 and the one-week-long descending resistance line of around $1,840 restrict the short-term upside of the Gold price. It’s worth noting that the XAUUSD remains on the bear’s radar unless it breaks a downward-sloping support-turned-resistance line from late June, close to $1,880 by the press time. Following that, a quick run-up to the $1,900 round figure can’t be ruled out.
Meanwhile, a downside break of the weekly support of around $1,815 will have to confront a slew of technical supports and oversold RSI (14) before allowing the Gold bears to visit the $1,800 round figure. Should the XAUUSD remain bearish past $1,800, a one-week-old descending support line of near $1,782 and the late November 2022 low of around $1,730 will be in the spotlight.
Overall, Gold bears take a breather after the previous day’s disappointing US data, as well as consolidate the latest losses ahead of Friday’s key US jobs report. However, the XAUUSD is not out of the woods yet, at least below $1,880. Hence, the latest bounce can be considered as a selling opportunity.
