Gold Price Forecast: Gold Threatens Larger Break, 1854 Support in Sight

Recommended Posts


Gold Price Forecast: XAU Winds Up for a Big Break - FOMC on Tap

Gold prices started off the week with another aggressive sell-off. Last Monday marked the May open for Gold and the yellow metal slid down for a fresh two-month-low before finding some support at prior resistance, taken from the swing at 1854.

That price at 1854 remains relevant: This was the swing high in January and it showed as resistance briefly in February, before prices gapped-through in the middle of that month, eventually building three days of support at that spot before the bullish trend extended.

But, after helping to set support on Monday and Tuesday of last week, sellers pushed down there for a test to start this week. And that’s leading to a strong rebound as US markets come online for the week. This puts the focus back on to short-term resistance, with levels at 1878 remaining of interest. Beyond that, we have a zone that was in-play for resistance on Friday at 1888-1891. And if bulls can push beyond that, then the same 1900-1923.70 zone comes back into play, which continued to carry pull over price action through last week, with the 1908 level coming in to help set last week’s high.

Taking a step back to the daily chart highlights the importance of this 1854 level. Prior resistance has played in as fresh support and sellers have so far remained fairly persistent after this level has come into play.

But, perhaps more enticing than the support hold itself is the potential move if it gives way, as the next spot of support is down around the 1831 area, after which a prior swing from 1810 comes into play. And longer-term support is down around 1783, which keeps the door open for sizable potential on the short side if sellers can retain control of longer-term price action.

Gold Longer-Term: Trendline Nearing

Taking a further step back on the Gold chart and there’s another item of interest. There’s a bullish trendline that, for this week, projects to around 1846. For Gold bulls, a hold at this level would be key to keeping the door open for topside strategies. This trendline connects swing lows from last August and this January, and that projection is close to coming into play and if sellers continue to drive, it’ll likely come into the picture this week.

    • Saga is positioning itself as a "layer-1 to launch layer-1s" - a mainnet platform that is explicitly designed to empower developers and enable the next 1,000 chains in gaming and entertainment. The core idea is to make it easier for developers to build infinitely scalable decentralized applications (dApps) through Saga's "chainlet" functionality. Essentially, they are customizable Layer 1 blockchains that can be deployed and operated within the Saga network. These chainlets share the same validators and security model as the Saga mainnet, providing developers with a robust and interoperable infrastructure to build on. The ability to rapidly deploy customized, scalable chains is a game-changer for blockchain gaming, and I can see Saga attracting a lot of attention from leading studios and indie developers alike. With the Bitget listing, SAGA tokens are now tradable on a major global exchange. This presents a fantastic opportunity for the project to increase its visibility and accessibility to a wider audience of investors and enthusiasts. Bitget's deep liquidity and advanced trading features should make it easier for both institutional and retail players to gain exposure to Saga.
    • I have not been a fan of either of exchanges and wallets native tokens but would wanna explore it now. I took interest from the current hype around BNB, OKB and BGB. These tokens particularly BNB and BGB has shown strength which is obviously due to increase in demand to take part in the most of the launchpool. BNB rose almost 80% in the past 1 year, BGB was on the spotlight with about 190% in a year. OKB may not be left out due to it's potential but has made any significant movement recently. Wallet tokens on the hand have also been doing well but may not be compared to Centralized exchanges imho; I have also monitored few wallet particularly trust wallet and C98 wallet. My best guess is we could be seeing the wallet tokens making impressive price action as we approach post halving due to increase in transactions and I wonder if any one here is considering the prospect BWB token for Bitget wallet. Launching pretty soon and airdrop participation in play. I would appreciate your speculative opinion on it potentials.
    • In the realm of cryptocurrency exchanges, playing by the rules isn’t just a suggestion—it’s a must for staying in the game. Most major centralized exchanges (CEXs) strive to adhere to these regulations, implementing measures to prevent money laundering and illicit activities. However, a recent controversy has emerged with BingX, a top CEX, defying US sanctions by allowing Iranian users full access to its platform. BingX facilitates Iranian Rial trading, directly violating US sanctions. They allow Iranian users to trade cryptocurrencies without KYC verification. This, along with offering peer-to-peer (P2P) transactions using Iranian fiat currency, further raises red flags. This incident is reminiscent of the past troubles faced by giants like Binance, who were caught facilitating transactions for sanctioned individuals, resulting in a $4.5 billion plea deal with US authorities in 2023. The question remains: will this defiance by BingX lead to its downfall? Regulatory bodies in the US, like the SEC or DOJ, might take action.However, the severity of the situation raises questions about the long-term viability of the exchange and whether it may face the prospect of closure or severe penalties for its actions. As governments grapple with the complexities of digital assets, CEXs that prioritize expansion over compliance will likely face increasing scrutiny and potential consequences.
