Gold prices rose on Wednesday amid a steady dollar and uncertainty over the outcome of U.S.-China trade talks. Moreover, the question on investors lips is; has Gold rally begun? Stay ahead of the gold market trading with the 23 May XAUUSD Technical Forecast.
23 May, GKFX – Currently, gold (XAU/USD) is flatlined around $1,292, having clocked a high of $1,296 earlier today. The safe-haven metal continues to have a hard time building upside momentum despite multiple long-tailed daily candles and a bullish price-relative strength index (RSI) divergence in the 4-hour chart.
Risk aversion in the equities is not helping the yellow metal
Further, the risk-off tone in the Asian equities, emerging market currency crisis and renewed trade tensions/North Korea issue has also failed to put a bid under the yellow metal.
That said, the probability of a corrective rally to $1,302 – double top neckline resistance (former support) remains high as long as prices remain above Monday’s long-tailed doji candle low of $1,282.
23 May XAUUSD Technical Forecast
Key support: $1,182 (Monday’s low), $1,277 (100-week MA), $1,267 (76.4% Fib R of Dec-Jan rally).
Key resistance: $1,297 (50-week MA), $1,302 (double top neckline + 10-day MA), $1,308 (10-week MA).
