Gold DAILY PRICE CHART (July 31 – FEB 7, 2020) Zoomed In

Daily XAUUSD Price Chart

Looking at the daily chart, we notice on Jan 21 Gold corrected its uptrend move and carved out a lower high at $1,568. Last week, the market opened with a runaway gap indicating that bulls were not done yet.

On Wednesday, the price revered to a higher trading zone $1,555- $ 1,625 eyeing a test of the high end of the zone. A close above this level may encourage XAU/USD bulls to push towards $1,672. That said, the weekly resistance levels underlined on the chart (zoomed in) should be monitored.

In turn, a close below the low end reflects bull’s hesitation and may lead some of them to exit the market. This could send XAU/USD towards $1,526. Further close below this level opens the door for bears to take charge and press towards $1,498. In that scenario, special attention should be paid to the weekly support area and levels marked on the chart as some traders might join/exit the market around these points.

Gold Four-HOUR PRICE CHART (DEC 30 – FEB 7,2020)

XAUUSD Four Hour Price Chart

From the four-hour chart, we noticed that On Feb 5 Gold declined to $1,547- its lowest level in two weeks. The market rallied after and failed in multiple occasions to break above the uptrend line originated from the Jan 14 low at $1,535. Any violation to this line could be considered as a bullish signal.

Thus, a break above $1,592 may cause a rally towards $1,610. Yet, the weekly resistance level underlined on the chart should be kept in focus. On the flip side, a break below the aforementioned Feb 5 low could send XAU/USD towards $1,526. Nevertheless, the Jan 14 low mentioned above should be watched closely.

See the chart to know more about key levels Gold would encounter in a further bearish scenario.
