Gold Technical Analysis – Bullish signs keep emerging

strong US data in the past months and the quick rise in Treasury yields and the
US Dollar weighed a lot on Gold, which threatened at some point a complete
breakdown. Recently, we started to see a turnaround in the data beginning with
the miss in the US PMIs last
week and the big misses in the labour market reports this first half of the
week. The market priced out the expectations for further rate hikes from the
Fed and brought forward expectations for rate cuts. This caused a selloff in
the Treasury yields and the US Dollar ultimately leading to a rally in

Gold Technical Analysis –
Daily Timeframe

On the
daily chart, we can see that Gold bounced on the 1893 level and rallied
strongly soon after as more and more US data started to miss expectations. The
price has even broken out of the red 21 moving average and the resistance at the
1934 level which flipped the bias from bearish to bullish. The next stop should

the most likely support should be the lower bound of the channel where we find
the confluence with
the previous resistance turned
, the 38.2% Fibonacci
level and the 4-hour 21 moving average.
This is where the buyers should pile in with a defined risk below the level and
target new higher highs. The sellers, on the other hand, will want to see the
price breaking lower to position for another drop into the lows.

Upcoming Events

This week is all about the US labour market data and the
recent releases haven’t been encouraging on a forward-looking basis. Today, the
main event will be the US Jobless Claims report accompanied by the US PCE data.
Tomorrow, we conclude the week with the US NFP and ISM Manufacturing PMI
reports. Weak data should support Gold, while strong readings should lead to
weakness, so it will be crucial to watch the releases in the next few days and
