XAU/USD Trades At 1,875.00

The XAU/USD exchange rate has raised to the 1,875.00 level. It is likely that yellow metal could gain support from the 55-, 100– and 200-hour SMAs, as well the Fibo 23.60% in the 1,846.60/1,860.59 range. Thus, bulls could prevail in the market in the short term. On the other hand, it...

1902 to cap Gold’s upside despite stronger than expected rebound

Gold's rebound from 1810.07 was stronger than expected and broke 1863.51 resistance. The development suggests that the first leg of the fall from 1959.15 has completed and stronger recovery could be seen to 61.8% retracement of 1959.16 to 1810.07 at 1902.20. But upside should be limited there to bring...

XAU/USD Trades Near 1,860.00

XAU/USD Pressured By 55- And 100-Hour SMAS

During Monday morning hours, the XAU/USD exchange rate bounced off the 1,810.00 level. Given that yellow metal is pressured by the 55– and 100-hour moving averages in the 1,845.00 area, it is likely that some downside potential could prevail in the market, and the rate could re-test the 1,810.00 mark.
