Notes: In my final Gold Weekly PriceOutlook we famous that the current XAU/USD restoration was buying and selling into near-term resistance heading into the yearly open, “below the 61.8% retracement of the November sell-off at 1829.” The 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the December rally now highlights assist at 1783 with key assist / bullish invalidation unchanged at 1754. A topside breach / shut above the yearly open would shift the main focus in direction of subsequent resistance targets the highlighted trendline confluence close to ~1855 and the 100% extension of the August rally at 1876.

Bottom line: This week’s gold pullback retains the give attention to the Fibonacci vary between 1783-1829 – search for a near-term breakout to supply steering with the broader outlook nonetheless constructive whereas above 1754. From a buying and selling standpoint, search for an exhaustion low early within the month with a breach / shut above the 2021 trendline wanted to clear the way in which for resumption in direction of vital resistance on the 2021 high-close / 61.8% retracement of the 2020 decline at 1903/23.

I’ll publish an up to date Gold Price Outlook as soon as we get additional readability on the near-term XAU/USD technical commerce ranges.
