Gold Price Forecast: XAU/USD keeps downside opened towards $1717 – Confluence Detector
Gold price sees a dead cat bounce as USD looks to regain poise. Focus remains on Fed’s tightening, underpinning Treasury yields. Goldremains vulnerable amid hawkish Fed outlook.
There seems to be no respite for gold price, as the risks remain skewed to the downside amid the immense strength seen in the US dollar and the Treasury yields so far this week. The Fed remains well on track to withdraw the stimulus support later this year, with markets pricing a rate hike in 2022. The hawkish Fed narrative and higher inflation seeming temporary keep the bullish undertone intact in the US yields, weighing negatively on the yields gold. Further, fading worries over the US government shutdown also adds to the greenback’s strength at gold’s expense.
Looking ahead, the dynamics in the yields and quarter-end flows will have a significant bearing on gold price.

Further down, the pivot point one-day S1 at $1717 could come to the buyers’ rescue.
Gold price could see a free-fall towards the pivot point one-week S2 at $1710 should the aforesaid cushion give way.
On the upside, immediate resistance awaits around $1731, which is the confluence of the Fibonacci 38.2% one-day, pivot point one-week S1 and SMA10 one-hour.
Next, the bulls could aim for the previous high four-hour at $1735, above which the convergence of the Fibonacci 61.8% one-day and the previous week’s low at $1738 will come into play.
Powerful hurdle around $1740-$1742 will test the bearish commitment if the recovery gains momentum. That area is confluence of the Fibonacci 38.2% one-month, pivot point one-day R1 and SMA5 one-day.
