Technical Analysis: Gold teases key support-zone amid global bond rout
With the fears of reflation propelling global Treasury yields and the US dollar, gold remains depressed near the three-month-old horizontal support. With the bond rout less likely to fade soon, coupled with the US dollar’s expected run-up on recently welcome fundamentals, gold is up for extra south-run. However, a clear downside break of $1,760 becomes necessary for the yellow metal to eye the mid-2020 lows near $1,670. However, the $1,745-40 has multiple supports to challenge the downside move.
Meanwhile, the corrective pullback may eye to regain the $1,800 threshold. Though, bulls will have less confidence until witnessing a break of the yearly resistance line, at $1,805 now. It should, however, be noted a confluence of 100-day and 200-day SMA offers a tough nut to crack for the gold buyers, currently around $1,860, before they retake controls.
