Yohay Elam

Gold has been dropping from the highs amid an upbeat market mood that turned unfavorable for the precious metal. Can it recover? XAU/USD is sitting at critical support.

The Technical Confluences Indicator is showing that gold is sitting just above a cluster of the line at $1,706, which includes the Simple Moving Average 5-15m, the previous 4h-low, and the all-important Fibonacci 23.6% one-month.

If it loses that level, the next cushion is only at $1,691, which is the meeting point of two pivot points – the one-day Support 2 and the one-week S2.

Noteworthy resistance awaits at $1,713, which is the convergence of the PP one-week S1 and the SMA 200-4h.

The next cap is at $1,717, which is the confluence of the Bollinger Band 15min-Upper, the BB one-day Middle, and the previous week's low.
