Gold sellers need validation from $2,298 and US GDP

Gold sellers need validation from $2,298 and US GDP

Gold price portrays a four-day losing streak as market players brace for the first readings of the US first quarter (Q1) 2024 Gross Domestic Product (GDP). In doing so, the XAUUSD justifies the previous day’s downside break of a $2,324 support confluence, now resistance, comprising the 21-SMA and a two-month-old upward-sloping trend line. It’s worth noting that the RSI (14) line’s retreat from the overbought territory joins the bearish MACD signals to add strength to the downside bias. However, a clear downside break of the previous resistance line stretched from early March, around $2,298 by the press time, becomes necessary for the bullion sellers to tighten the grip. Additionally, a strong print of the US Q1 GDP could also convince the precious metal bears to take action. Following that, the 38.2% and 50% Fibonacci retracement of the quote’s February-April upside, respectively near $2,262 and $2,208, will be in the spotlight ahead of the 50-SMA support of $2,198.

Alternatively, downbeat prints of the US Q1 GDP could trigger the Gold Price recovery that will aim for the $2,324 support-turned-resistance confluence. In a case where the XAUUSD remains firmer past $2,324, the $2,350 and the $2,400 psychological magnets will lure the buyers. However, a fortnight-old descending resistance line surrounding $2,405 will precede the recent swing highs of near $2,418 and $2,432 to challenge the precious metal’s further advances. It’s worth noting that the commodity’s successful trading beyond $2,432 won’t hesitate to flash the $2,400 threshold.

Overall, Gold price remains pressured ahead of the key data but the quote’s further downside needs validation.
