Gold Prices Climb Higher After Rebounding Off Technical Support

Gold prices experienced their second consecutive week of gains, driving futures toward $1,880.

After a brief retest of the 100-week MA (moving average) around $1,1813, a swift retaliation from bulls drove prices beyond $1,840. With XAU/USD gaining traction, the prior resistance level now holds as support for the short-term move.

On the weekly chart below, the strong rebound resulted in the formation of a hammer candle, suggestive of a potential reversal. While buyers continue to push higher, both psychological and technical levels could provide some big hurdles for bulls.

However, if prices fall below the 100-week MA, a rise in bearish momentum could pave the way for a move toward the next big psychological level of $1,800.
