    Gold Price Forecast: GLD Jumps from 7-Month Low, Can XAU Bulls Drive?

    Abstract:Gold Price Forecast: GLD Jumps from 7-Month Low, Can XAU Bulls Drive?
    •   Gold prices set a fresh seven-month-low last Thursday.

    •   This low printed around a big zone of confluent support thats since helped to bring a bullish response into the matter.

      Gold prices are bid today as the yellow metal extends a bounce from a key area of support on the chart. The zone from 1763-1766 was looked at a couple of weeks ago. This area contains two different Fibonacci levels and when it came into play in late-November, it helped to bring buyers back into the mix, and that led into a bounce that entailed a run of more than $200 in a little over a month as buyers backed the bid coming into 2021.

      But New Year price action hasn‘t been all that friendly to Gold bulls, as a downdraft developed in January that’s lasted through the bulk of February. Last Thursday saw prices develop a fresh seven-month-low, temporarily testing below this confluent zone of support; and bulls have since come back into the matter to push prices back above the 1800 psychological level.

    GOLD STRENGTH: CAN GOLD BULLS PUSH EVEN WITH RISING RATES IN THE US?

      At the source of that recent weakness in Gold has been the fear of diminished real rates, brought upon by a loose and passive FOMC thats avoiding tighter policy, even in the event that inflation begins to rise. That fear around inflation remains a hot-button item at the moment, and this can be witnessed in the US Treasury curve as the 10-year note has risen to its highest levels since the pandemic came into the equation last March.

      A plethora of US data points on the calendar for this week can serve to keep these themes in the spotlight, with the Friday release of PCE numbers, the Feds preferred inflation gauge, likely garnering considerable attention.

      For Gold price action – prices have already caught a quick bit of resistance from a prior swing-low around 1810. But just ahead is a huge zone of potential resistance, as taken from support between two different Fibonacci levels running from 1825-1836.

    GOLD PRICE STRATEGY MOVING FORWARD

      Going back to the Daily chart to get some scope on the matter, and this is still a bear market bounce following the early-February extension of the sell-off. Price action broke below a symmetrical triangle formation earlier this month and after a quick check-back for resistance, continued the sequence of lower-lows and lower-highs until the current zone of support came into play.

      At this point, the bearish side of the matter can remain interesting, especially if sellers can take-over at or before a test of the resistance zone from 1825-1836.

      For signs of bullish themes returning, a breach through the 1859-1873 zone could make matters look considerably different but, until then, therell still be some conjecture as to whether bears are in control given that recent sequencing of lower-highs and lower-lows in price action.
