Gold Price- Recovered Losses

On June 5, Gold declined to its lowest level in over six weeks at $1,670 however, last week the market traded higher and closed the weekly candlestick in the green with a 2.6% gain.

The Gold price retreated amid hopes of a V-shape recovery in the US and the rest of the world caused by governments stimulus plans and a faster pace of economies reopening. Nonetheless, the market reversed direction on growing concerns that a resurgence of coronavirus cases could pause the pace of recovery or even lead to fresh restrictions.

Gold daily chart price 15-06-20 Zoomed in

On April 23, Gold corrected its upward trend and carved out a lower high at $1,739. Since then, the price has traded in a sideways move then developed a head and shoulders pattern.

Hence, any break below the neckline of this pattern located at $1,670 would be considered a bearish signal.

On May 18, the precious metal rallied to an over seven and a half -year high at $1,765 however, the market reversed lower to the current trading zone $1,685 - $1,752 reflecting bull’s hesitation at this stage.

A close below the low end of the aforementioned zone could send XAU/USD even lower towards $1,635. Any further close below that level may encourage bears to press towards $1,555.

On the flip-side, a close above the zone signals that bulls could push towards $1,796. A further close above that level may extend the rally towards $1,859.
