Gold Chart Shows Prices Flirting with $1,300 Again After Anti-Risk Bid

Gold Chart Shows Prices Flirting with $1,300 Again After Anti-Risk Bid

Rich Dvorak, Analyst

GOLD TECHNICAL FORECAST – TALKING POINTS

  • XAUUSD rebounded over 1 percent Friday to $1,300 after prices based at the $1,285 level earlier in the week
  • Gold’s long-term technical uptrend looks set to resume as anti-risk fundamentals helps boost the commodity higher as fears over slowing global growth creep back into the market

The price of gold recovered a mere 0.4 percent over the last 5 days of trading following the prior week’s carnage. XAUUSD appears to have found support around $1,285 which lines up with the 0.618 Fibonacci retracement level drawn from the recent high in February and low in November.

With Friday’s healthy gain, the long-term uptrend in gold could easily continue as prices snap back towards the 20-day moving average. The shift in the RSI and MACD indicators back into sending bullish territory will likely solidify the case for gold’s ascent to resume.

On the contrary, the short-term downtrend could put further pressure on the precious metal, especially if spot prices fail to break back above the psychological $1,300 resistance level as old technical support becomes new resistance. In addition, the 0.786 Fibonacci retracement lines starting from last month’s high down to the August and November lows could serve as additional obstacles for further XAUUSD upside. Alternatively, the area could be viewed as potential upside targets for bulls.

As gold stabilized at the 0.618 Fibonacci retracement level, prices could begin to wedge if the commodity does not push higher above the newly formed downtrend line. If further upside fails to come to fruition, heavy selling pressure could easily resume.

That being said, fundamental drivers will likely thwart a technical bias and determine where XAUUSD moves from here. The slowing global growth narrative appears to be re-entering the minds of traders and investors which could bid up demand for gold given its anti-risk properties. Although, upside in gold could be materially limited by a strong US Dollar reasserting its dominance.
