When equities fall, purchasers emerge – this has been the principle of the financial market for many years, and it now looks to be valid for the precious metal. The gold price fell after bond yields surged in reaction to the Fed’s indication that it will begin to cut its asset-buying program, according to Bloomberg. A swift rebound, though, was facilitated by end-of-quarter inflows.
The Technical Confluences Detector reveals that gold meets some barrier at $1.757, which is the confluence of the Fibonacci 38.2 percent one week and Bollinger Band 4h-Upper. It is at $1,777 that the important cap will be reached, as this is where the Fibonacci 61.8 percent one-month as well as the BB one-day Mid intersect. In the near term, support can be found at $1,742, which would be a convergence of the Fibonacci 38.2 percent one-month retracement and the former one-hour high. Continuing lower, the price of $1,737 is at the intersection of several lines, including the prior week’s bottom and the Fibonacci 61.8 percent one day.

XAU/USD CHART. Source: Tradingview.com
XAU/USD is having its strongest day since May, with a gain of over $40 an ounce. Nevertheless, the progress may be corrective. The daily chart indicates that the yellow metal reached a high near the 38.2 percent retrace of its recent slide from 1,833.95 – 1,731.59 around 1,764.35. The 20 SMA continues a solidly bearish slant around the 50% declines of the same fall whilst extending well under the lengthier ones. However, chart patterns have maintained a bearish level of recovery.
The meter has skewed upward in the short future, per the 4-hour chart. Gold has skyrocketed beyond a now-flat 20 SMA, while chart patterns have nearly vertically moved north inside positive levels. Additional gains are possible if the pair settles above the indicated Fibonacci resistance level, with a target of 1,777.75. The levels of support: 1,748.05 1,735.26 1,721.60. The levels of resistance: 1,764.35 1,777.75 1,787.30

The yellow metal fell as low as 1,722.19 during the mid-European trade, finding traders on a pullback from Wednesday’s low of 1,721.59. The USD maintained its resilience and reached record highs versus the majority of major competitors, except for relatively secure currencies, which succeeded to outperform the dollar during the US trading session.
Gold soared as Wall Street fell on supply chain issues and predictions that rising inflation will force the US Federal Reserve to start trimming in the nearish term. At the time of posting, the Dow Jones Industrial Average is down more than 400 pts, with all major US markets moving downward, whereas the yield on the 10-year US Treasury note has crept lower but remains above 1.50 percent.
