Gold Price News and Forecast: XAU/USD two steps away from key $1800 level

Gold Price Analysis: Two steps away from key $1800 level

Following a robust end to the second quarter, Gold keeps its shine starting out the third quarter, trading close to the highest level since October 2010. A test of the key $1800 mark looks inevitable, as Gold futures on Comex have already scaled that level.  

As observed in the Technical Confluences Indicator, the bulls are likely to face stiff resistance around $1786, the confluence of the previous day high and pivot point one-week Resistance 1.

Acceptance above the latter will see the next hurdle at $1789 at risk, where pivot point one-day Resistance 1 and Bollinger Band one-day Upper intersect. A test of the $1800 mark is inevitable on clearance of the above two resistance levels.
