- Gold price struggles to extend previous day’s run-up six-week high, mildly offered as of late.
- Key resistance confluence, receding fears of full-fledged financial market crisis probe XAU/USD bulls.
- Credit Suisse joins the league of SVB, Signature Bank to previously propel Gold price.
- Second-tier data, bond market moves eyed for clear directions.
Gold price (XAU/USD) fades upside momentum despite recently bouncing off intraday low to $1,908 during early Thursday. In doing so, the precious metal justifies the previous day’s failure to cross the $1,923 key hurdle while also taking clues from the market’s indecision amid looming fears of financial market distress.
A European G-SIB – a global systemically important bank, namely Credit Suisse, rocked finance markets the previous day, joining the line of Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) and Signature Bank from the US. However, the global policymakers’ rush to placate the market fears, recently by the Saudi National Bank, seems to prod the XAU/USD’s haven demand. Also weighing on the Gold price could be the lackluster Treasury yields as bond traders lick their wounds after refreshing the multi-day low the previous day. Furthermore, intact hawkish hopes from the US Federal Reserve (Fed) and the European Central (ECB) also challenge the commodity buyers ahead of a likely another volatile day.
Gold Price: Key levels to watch
As per the Technical Confluence Detector, the Gold price reversed from the $1,924 resistance confluence including Pivot Point one-month R1.
The XAU/USD pullback, however, remains elusive as the quote stays beyond the short-term key support surrounding $1,910, comprising Pivot Point one-week R2 and SMA10 on Four-hour.
It should be observed that Fibonacci 38.2% on one-day restricts the immediate downside of the Gold price near $1,917.
That said, the Gold price weakness past $1,910 could quickly drag it to the key $1,901-1900 support confluence encompassing Fibonacci 61.8% on one-month.
On the flip side, a clear upside break of $1,924 hurdle may need validation from the $1,925 mark comprising Fibonacci 23.6% on one-day before fueling Gold price towards the previous daily high surrounding $1,938.
In a case where XAU/USD remains firmer past $1,938, it can prod the $1,945 resistance mark signified by the Pivot Point one-day R1.
