Gold prices have recently remained under pressure as inflationary pressures and the probability of higher rates weigh on risk sentiment.

Gold (XAU/USD) Technical Analysis

After two consecutive weeks of gains, Gold prices have bulls ran into a wall of resistance above the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level of the 2020 – 2021 move at $1,8930.

As buyers and sellers battle it out, the development of a potential spinning top candle on the weekly time-frame is indicative of indecision as prices track the 10-period moving average (MA).
