Chart Ready by Michael Boutros, Technical Strategist; Gold on Tradingview
Notes: In my final Gold Value Weekly Outlook we famous that the plunge in XAU/USD was, “testing the primary main hurdle and the fast focus is on key assist at 1451/61 with the short-bias weak whereas above this threshold.” Value briefly registered a low at 1445 earlier than reversing sharply with bullion up more-than 1.7% off the lows.
Gold has been testing multi-year median-line resistance for the previous two weeks with extra vital resistance eyed on the highlighted trendline confluence round ~1490 – a breach / shut above this threshold could be wanted to validate a bigger reversal with such a state of affairs focusing on one other run on 1522/26. A break under crucial assist right here at 1451/56 would danger accelerated losses for gold with subsequent assist targets eyed on the median-line / 100% extension at 1420– search for a much bigger response there IF reached.
