Gold remains vulnerable to further downside, $2,306 eyed

Gold remains vulnerable to further downside, $2,306 eyed

Gold slides beneath a four-week-old rising support line while extending the previous day’s fall amid a firmer US Dollar early Thursday. That said, the bullion marked the biggest daily loss in a week and snapped a three-day winning streak on Wednesday. It should be noted that the quote’s latest support break joins the bearish MACD signals and steady RSI to keep sellers hopeful. As a result, a convergence of an eight-week-old rising support line and the 50-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA), close to $2,306, gains the market’s attention. If at all the precious metal remains weak past $2,306, the monthly bottom of $2,277 and the early April swing low surrounding $2,265 will act as the last defense of the buyers.

On the contrary, the XAUUSD’s corrective bounce needs to provide a daily closing beyond the support-turned-resistance line, near $2,340 by the press time, to convince the buyers. Even so, a slew of resistances around $2,360 and $2,390 will challenge the Gold price upside before highlighting a seven-week-old horizontal resistance area surrounding $2,433. Following that, the recent high of near $2,450 and the $2,500 threshold should lure the bulls.

To sum up, the Gold price signals further downside but a clear break of $2,306 becomes necessary to defeat the bulls at least for the short term.
