Gold Price Forecast: XAU/USD rebound appears elusive within $1,951-43 range – Confluence Detector

  • Gold Price portrays corrective bounce on the way to posting three-week downtrend.
  • Cautious mood amid looming US debt ceiling expiry, key US data allow US Dollar to retreat, underpin XAU/USD’s bounce.
  • Upbeat US statistics, hawkish Fed concerns join hopes of no US default, despite all drama, to keep Gold bears hopeful.

Gold Price (XAU/USD) pares weekly losses at the lowest levels in two months as markets await the key US data, as well as the debt ceiling deal. The precious metal’s latest rebound could be linked to the US Dollar’s retreat from a multi-day top as the latest headlines suggest that the policymakers still have sizeable differences to cut to avoid the US default. Even so, upwardly revised US Real GDP and activity data underpin hawkish hopes surrounding the Federal Reserve, despite mixed comments from the Officials of late, which in turn exert downside pressure on the XAU/USD.

Moving on, US debt ceiling negotiations will be crucial to gauge the market moves as the early June deadline looms. Further, the US Durable Goods Orders for April and the Core Personal Consumption Expenditure (PCE) Price Index for the said month, known as the Fed’s preferred inflation gauge, should also be watched carefully for clear directions.

Gold Price: Key levels to watch

As per the out Technical Confluence Indicator, the Gold Price grinds within a short-term trading range around the multi-day low.

That said, the $1,943 appears the key support for the XAU/USD bear’s re-entry as it comprises a slew of technical indicators namely the Pivot Point one-month S1, previous high on four-hour (4H) and the middle band of the Bollinger on the 15-minute timeframe.

Following that, the lower band of the Bollinger on the one-day and four-hour timeframes, around $1,938, can act as the last defense of the Gold buyers.

It should be noted that a convergence of the Fibonacci 23.6% on one-day and Pivot Point one-week S1 restricts the immediate downside of the XAU/USD near $1,945.

Meanwhile, the quote’s recovery moves need validation from the previous monthly low of around $1,951.

In a case where the Gold Price remains firmer past $1,951, the odds of witnessing a run-up towards the $1,967 hurdle encompassing the 100-HMA, 5-DMA and previous daily high can’t be ruled out.

Given the XAU/USD run-up past $1,967, the Fibonacci 23.6% on one-week around $1,971 can try to defend the castle with one hand.
