Gold daily chart price 03-04-20 Zoomed in

Looking at the daily chart, we notice that on March 16 Gold printed its lowest level in over three and half months at $1,451. Later on, bears showed reluctance, this allowed the market to rally and to settle above $1,500 handle. Last week, XAU/USD climbed and remained in current trading zone $1,555- $1,635 as failed in multiple occasions to move to the higher zone.

Yesterday, Gold closed above the 50-day average providing a bullish signal. Thus, a close above the high end of the zone may encourage bulls to push the price towards $1,685. Further close above that level could mean more bullishness towards $1,796. In this scenario, the weekly resistance levels underscored on the chart (zoomed in) should be watched closely.

In turn, any close below the low end of the zone could press XAU/USD towards $1,527. Further close below that level could send the price even lower towards $1,431. That said, the daily and weekly support level and areas marked on the chart should be considered.
