XAU/USD one-hour chart
On the one-hour chart, a positive sign occurs when the 50 Moving Average (MA) passes above the 100 period. The interpretation of the (MA) supports gold's bull trend continuing in the near future. On the other hand, the Relative Strength Index recorded 61.23 on the value line with ascending momentum, indicating more upside potential is expected before the RSI enters the overbought zone.
The XAU/USD at the current time encounters resistance at the 1850.31 level. A successful close of the one-hour candlestick at the aforementioned level would pave the way towards today’s high level of 1857.23. Additionally, the previous mentioned level serves as a resistance level. Closing above that level may bring the 1862.87 level to the eyes.
Alternatively, if the current resistance level could prevent the price from rising higher, that would open the door towards 1841.62, today’s low, followed by the 1840.58 hurdle. The market participants may see 1836.41 if the price falls below the aforementioned level. A decisive breach will pave the way towards the 1830.72 support level.
