XAUUSD Technical Analysis

Analyzing the daily chart of the gold market. With the U.S. Consumer Price Index falling short of market expectations, the market anticipates an end to the rate hike cycle and rate cuts next year. As a result, U.S. stock indices have risen significantly, and with expected interest rate decreases, gold is attracting buyers.

Gold has rebounded at the 240-day moving average, with the conversion line of the Ichimoku Kinko Hyo acting as a resistance line. Based on Fibonacci expansion, the final target price on the upside is USD 2052.

On the other hand, the near-term upside target is expected to be USD 1985. As long as the market’s expectation of lower interest rates continues, the uptrend in gold is likely to persist.


Day Trading Strategy (1-Hour Chart)

Analyzing the 1-hour chart of the gold market. The 240 moving average is showing a significant downward curve, and the current price has reached this moving average, showing signs of a rebound.

If the mood for rate cuts continues, gold will be fundamentally supported, but the focus will be on whether it can surpass the 240MA. With the RSI reaching around 70, there is a possibility of a certain degree of downward adjustment.

As a day trading strategy, consider buying on dips at USD 1950, setting the take profit at USD 1975, and stop loss at USD 1940.

Support and Resistance Lines

The resistance line to be considered in the future is as follows

2052 USD – Major Resistance Line
1985 USD – Near-term Major Resistance Line
