Gold Price: Key levels to watch
The Technical Confluence Detector shows that Gold Price is striving hard to recapture $1,836, which is the meeting point of the Fibonacci 23.6% one-day and Fibonacci 38.2% one-month.
Acceptance above the latter will trigger a fresh upswing towards the pivot point one-week S1 at $1,839.
The next strong resistance is aligned near $1,842, the confluence of the SMA200 one-day, the previous day’s high and the Fibonacci 38.2% one-day.
Further up, the convergence of the Fibonacci 61.8% one-week and the SMA10 one-day at $1,845 will challenge the bearish commitments, as bulls keep their sight on the pivot point one-day R1 at $1,849.
Alternatively, the Fibonacci 38.2% one-day at $1,828 offers immediate support, below which the previous week’s low of $1,825 will be in the picture.
The Fibonacci 61.8% one-day at $1,820 could rescue bulls if the downside pressure intensifies.
The line in the sand for gold buyers is pegged at $1,816, the Fibonacci 23.6% one-month.
