Gold sellers need to break $1,925 support for further downside

Gold sellers need to break $1,925 support for further downside

Gold Price fades bounce off an upward-sloping support line from late February by retreating from the 50-DMA hurdle, around $1,945 by the press time. Adding strength to the downside bias are the bearish MACD signals and a downward-sloping RSI (14), not oversold. With this, the XAUUSD is likely to break the stated support line, around $1,925 by the press time. Following that, a quick fall toward the $1,900 round figure can’t be ruled out. However, a six-month-long horizontal support zone around $1,890 and the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement of February-May upside, near $1,860 may test the metal’s further downside before challenging the yearly low marked in March around $1,804.

On the contrary, a daily closing beyond the 50-DMA hurdle of around $1,945 may allow the Gold buyers to aim for the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level of around $1,967. However, an area comprising multiple levels marked since May 19, close to $1,985, will challenge the XAUUSD bulls afterward. In a case where the bullion price rally crosses the $1,985 resistance, the $2,000 round figure may give a final fight to the optimists before giving them control.

Overall, the Gold Price remains on the back foot but a clear downside break of $1,925 becomes necessary for the bears to take control.
