    GOLD PRICE RETREATS TO SUPPORT AHEAD OF PIVOTAL FOMC MEETING

      Gold prices ticked lower to start the week as traders anxiously await the looming Federal Open Market Committee meeting due Wednesday. The event, which has been lauded as the top event risk of the month by many, possesses the potential to spark considerable market volatility and upend recent price trends. Gold may be exceedingly vulnerable to post-FOMC price movements as Treasury yields and the US Dollar have longstanding influence over the precious metal.

      As a result, the bullish technical formation gold enjoys could unravel should the Fed reveal a hawkish lean. The “golden cross” formation gold posted last week is the most recent sign of potential gains in the future, but golds price action in the week thus far suggests the recovery rally that began in late March could be in peril.

      To that end, the line in the sand for gold‘s recovery rally likely stands around the $1,850 area. Adjacent to the descending trendline that support is originally derived from is the metal’s 50-day simple moving average (SMA), its 200-day SMA and a Fibonacci level. Together, the various technical markers create an area of considerable support that, if broken, would constitute a significant shift in the technical outlook.

      With that in mind, all eyes turn to the upcoming FOMC meeting at which the central bank will offer crucial insight on their projected policy path, inflation expectations and economic forecasts. Should market sentiment shift or the Fed change its policy path, golds recent recovery rally could come to an end if price slips back into the descending channel from August. Until such a breakdown occurs, however, longer-term strength remains a possibility.
