The $1,800-$1,795 zone seems to protect the immediate downside
“Market participants now look forward to the US economic docket, featuring the releases of the Empire State Manufacturing Index, Industrial Production figures and Capacity Utilization Rate. This, along with the US bond yields, might influence the USD and provide some impetus to the XAU/USD.”
“Strength/acceptance above the $1,800 mark favours bullish traders. Some follow-through buying beyond the $1,808-10 region (200-DMA) will reaffirm the constructive outlook and set the stage for additional gains. XAU/USD might then accelerate the momentum back towards the $1,832-34 supply zone. The latter marks the multiple-tops barrier, which if cleared decisively should push the metal towards $1,853.”
“The $1,800-$1,795 region now seems to protect the immediate downside ahead of the $1,780 strong support. A convincing break below will be seen as a fresh trigger for bearish traders and set the stage for a sharp fall towards the $1,750 level.”
