Gold Price tested the bearish 21-Daily Moving Average (DMA) at $1,849. More downside in the offing? The yellow metal looks south amid firmer yields, FXStreet’s Dhwani Mehta reports.
200-DMA at risk?
“The sentiment around the bond market holds the key for placing fresh bets on gold price. The US rates are staging a solid rebound, with the benchmark 10-year yields up roughly 3.5% so far. Also, of note remains the preliminary inflation print from the Eurozone and the US CB Consumer Confidence data for fresh cues on the broader market sentiment.”
“Acceptance below the 21-DMA at $1,849 will trigger a fresh drop towards the horizontal 200-DMA at $1,840. Daily closing below the latter is needed to fade the recovery and turn the focus back on the May 18 low of $1,807.”
“Recapturing the daily highs of $1,857 is critical to take on the upside towards the previous day’s high of $1,864. Further up, the two-week highs at $1,870 will be next on the buyers’ radars, above which the mildly bullish 100-DMA at $1,888 will be challenged.”
