Gold is under pressure

Gold is under pressure following the expectations for the next U.S. rate hike.

Current situation

Gold traded in a tight range on Tuesday. The price was sandwiched between 1330 – 1336. The metal partly recovered in the American session. Buyers were able to push the price to 1340. The resistance is seen at 1350, the support stands at 1330.

MACD remained in the negative area. MACD grew which indicates the sellers’ positions weakening. RSI bounced from the oversold area.

The price spiked upwards to the 50-EMA in the 4 hours chart. The 50-EMA acts as a resistance for the XAU/USD. The 50, 100 and 200 EMAs are neutral.

Trading recommendations

We expect Gold to continue growing with the target at 1350.
