Looking at the daily chart, we noticed that last week Gold U-turned then closed above the 50-day average providing a bullish signal. On Monday, The market climbed to current trading zone $1,635-$1,685 generating another bullish signal.

A close above the high end of the zone might encourage bulls to push towards $1,752. Further close above that level could mean more bullishness towards $1,796. Having said that, the monthly resistance levels underscored on the chart (Zoomed in) should be kept in focus.

On the flip-side, any failure in closing above the high end of the zone reflects bulls hesitation to rally Gold further. This may lead some of them to exit the market allowing the price to reverse towards the low end of the zone. Further close below that level could send XAU/USD even lower towards $1,555. In that scenario, the daily and weekly support levels marked on the chart should be monitored.
