XAUUSD Technical Analysis

Analyzing the daily chart of Gold, it broke below the support line of 2009 USD, falling to around 1990 USD. The highs are decreasing, suggesting increased selling pressure. Additionally, the RSI is at 42, indicating a bearish trend.

The next major support level is around 1980 USD, with the possibility of further decline. The main factor behind this is the strengthening of the dollar due to the higher-than-expected US CPI, with expectations of prolonged high-interest rates in the background.

Although there was a pause yesterday, if there’s another instance of dollar strength, Gold is likely to decline. Tomorrow’s focus will be on the US Producer Price Index.
