Gold Price Projected: XAU/EUR Centralizes Declines At €1,590

Before the start of the European session on Tuesday, Gold (XAU/EUR) was grinding around its intraday high, up 0.17% on the day near €1,588.

As a result, metal valuations in the Euro have recovered some of the losses suffered the previous day, which were the worst since November 30. However, the perception remains mixed.

The market’s stance during the calm year-end session, along with a light schedule, has triggered the metal’s most recent rally.

The expectation of a US stimulus package, as well as rumors that the viral crisis has a short shelf life, might all work in favor of a corrective downturn. 

However, the deteriorating Omicron circumstances in the West portend increased activity limits and the spoiling of the Christmas season, which will put additional pressure on the XAU/EUR purchasers.

In the same vein, the European Central Bank (ECB) is unable to reach a conclusion on its stance on fiscal policy tightening since different committee members have differing views on inflation and the necessity of consolidating policies. 

In this environment, the 10-year Treasury rates in the United States maintain their previous day’s rebound off a 16-month-old support line at around 1.43%, while stock futures in the United States and Europe post modest gains by the time of posting. 

Moving forward, risk triggers may provide intermediate swings in Gold prices, but purchasers may find nothing to rejoice about in light of the Omicron problems.

That being stated, US President Joe Biden is scheduled to deliver a speech to the country. Nevertheless, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has previously stated that the address would not be about bringing the country to a grinding halt.

XAU/EUR CHART Source: Tradingview.com

Gold prices have remained within a bullish rising channel chart pattern that has been in place for three weeks, lately bouncing off the 50% Fibonacci retracement (Fibo) of the rally that began in early November. 

Frequent struggles to stay above the 200-SMA, along with bearish MACD indications and a solid RSI line, provide a reason for sellers of XAU/EUR to remain optimistic. 

The nearest Fibo support level of €1,587, which corresponds to the lower line of the indicated channel, is expected to be around €1,575 at the time of publication and will be the key to the metal’s continuing decline towards the lower line of the channel. 

The bullish chart formation will be rejected unless there is a definite negative breach of €1,575; however, the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement line near €1,571 will act as an extra downside filter before emphasizing the monthly trough for Gold sellers, which is expected to be around €1,555.

Alternatively, recovery efforts might be directed at the 200-SMA level of €1,594 and subsequently the €1,600 threshold as a first step. However, the channel’s resistance line at €1,605 may present a test to Gold buyers in the next few days.
