Gold Price Forecast XAUUSD rebound approaches $2,010 hurdle – Confluence Detector

  • Gold price prints the first daily gains in three amid cautious optimism.
  • US Dollar traces Treasury bond yields to retreat ahead of top-tier data/events.
  • Mixed headlines surrounding China require XAU/USD bulls to remain cautious.
  • Gold traders need clear signals from US inflation, Fed Minutes for further directions.

Gold price (XAU/USD) regains $2,000 as a softer US Dollar joins a retreat in the US Treasury bond yields to lure XAU/USD bears amid full markets. A reassessment of the Federal Reserve’s (Fed) rate hike bets join optimism surrounding the India-China growth, per the International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva, allow the Gold price to remain firmer. However, downbeat China inflation numbers and the US-China tension prod the XAU/USD bulls.

Further, cautious mood ahead of Wednesday’s key US inflation data and the Fed Minutes join consolidation of recent moves amid full markets to allow the Gold price to remain mildly bid.

That said, Gold price remains firmer amid a broad US Dollar pullback and fresh concerns over the Fed’s next moves. However, the XAU/USD bulls need validation from the US CPI and the FOMC Minutes moving forward.

Gold Price: Key levels to watch

Our Technical Confluence Indicator shows that the Gold price grinds higher towards the $2,010 resistance confluence comprising the previous monthly high.

Also acting as an upside filter is the $2,014 mark which encompasses Fibonacci 23.6% on one-week.

Following that, Pivot Point one-day R2, Fibonacci 161.8% on one-day and Pivot Point one-day R3 can challenge the Gold buyers around $2,016, $2,020 and $2025 in that order.

Meanwhile, pullback moves have multiple hurdles to the south before welcoming the XAU/USD bears.

Among them, SMA10 on 4H and 10-HMA restrict the immediate downside of the Gold price near $1,998 and $1,995 respectively.

Should the XAU/USD price remains bearish past $1,995, Fibonacci 61.8% on one week, around $1,982, can act as the last defense of the Gold buyers.
