Gold DAILY PRICE CHART (April 5 – June 22, 2020) Zoomed In

Gold daily chart price 22-06-20 Zoomed in

On June 8, the precious metal climbed to the current trading zone $1,685 - $1,752 and maintained its sideways move highlighting weak bulls and weaker bears. Today, the price has broken above the high end of the aforementioned zone and rallied to a five-week high at $1,758.

A close above the high end of the zone indicates that bulls are gaining momentum and this could trigger a rally towards $1,796. Any further close above this level means a stronger bullish sentiment and may extend the rally towards $1,859.

In turn, a close below the high end of the zone may lead Gold to repeat the mid-May scenario ie, the price could continue its sideways move and press towards the low end of the zone. Any close below this level indicates that bulls are losing momentum and may send XAU/USD even lower towards $1,635.
