XAU/USD looks north towards $1,782 ahead of Jackson Hole

25 August 2022

Gold price extends its recovery rally into a fourth straight day on Thursday. Profit-taking on US dollar longs ahead of Jackson Hole supports the bullion. XAU/USD eyes $1,782 on a sustained break above the key $1,765 level. Gold price is extending its three-day recovery rally on Thursday, capitalizing on the ongoing correction in the US dollar across the board. China announced additional economic stimulus to support growth late Wednesday, which has lifted the overall market mood and reduced the safe-haven demand for the greenback.

Further, investors are resorting to position readjustment ahead of the critical US events, in the form of the Fed’s Jackson Hole Symposium and Friday’s Chair Jerome Powell’s speech.

The US Treasury yields are retreating from multi-week highs, offering additional support to the non-yielding bullion. Markets are eagerly awaiting the remarks from Powell for fresh clues on the Fed’s tightening path and his outlook on the economy as well as on inflation.

Gold price: key levels to watch

The Technical Confluence Detector shows that the gold price is challenging powerful resistance at $1,765, the convergence of the Fibonacci 61.8% one-month, pivot point one-day R2 and the previous high four-hour. The next immediate hurdle is seen at $1,767, the SMA10 one-day, above which the confluence of the SMA50 one-day and the pivot point one-day R3 is aligned at $1,772.

A sustained move above the latter will kickstart a fresh upswing towards the Fibonacci 61.8% one-week at $1,782.

Alternatively, the metal could find some comfort at around $1,759, the Fibonacci 23.6% one-week. The Fibonacci 23.6% one-day at $1,754 could come to the rescue of buyers should the retreat extend. A dense cluster of support levels around $1,750 will be next on sellers’ radars. That demand area is the intersection of the SMA200 four-hour, SMA5 one-day and Fibonacci 61.8% one-day.
