XAU/USD technical analysis

Spot Gold prices have been aiming cautiously lower in recent days, extending the broader decline since May. Guiding the yellow metal lower has been a falling trendline from May. Recently, XAU/USD rejected the former rising support line from November as it intersected with the descending trendline, opening the door to a downward resumption.

Now, gold is facing the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level of 1903.46 as immediate support. Breaking lower would expose the August swing low of 1884. Clearing under the latter opens the door to downtrend resumption, exposing the midpoint of the Fibonacci retracement level of 1848.37. Otherwise, turning higher places the focus on the 1936.90 inflection point.

XAG/USD technical analysis

Meanwhile, things are also looking interesting for silver. After a series of more pronounced losses compared to gold, XAG/USD now finds itself testing a rising range of support from September 2022. This zone is also closely aligned with the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of 22.29. Given this key support juncture, a bounce higher is possible.

That would open the door to extending consolidation since March. Immediate resistance is the midpoint of the Fibonacci retracement at 23.02. Pushing higher would subsequently expose the falling zone of resistance from April. If the latter holds, silver may prolong its broadly neutral technical bias. Otherwise, clearing support exposes the 78.6% level at 21.24.

    • With the CryptoSpace evolving everydayy, a plethora of ways also trump up for users to earn and have fun alongside. Some of these events are my favourites. I have participated in a couple of them and the potential to earn therefrom is immense.  Just recently, I came across an event on Bitget for its users to earn passively as well as an opportunity to spin the wheel to win an all expense tour to Santorini island. The criteria for participating in this is relatively simple, you just need to make a net deposit of over 100 USDT and maintain the amount for a day. Depositing greater sums like $500 USDT, 1000 USDT and 1 BTC can further your chances of winning. The more tasks completed, the more spins a participant may have. The event is exclusively restricted to users from the; United Kingdom, Canada, Australia/DACH, French, Italian, Netherlands, Sweden and Poland region. The total prize pool is $50,000 based on FCFS serve basis. This sounds too good to look away from.
    • Still the silence is deafening in here. When will this happen?  it have moved most my Trading Capital to another broker who does support Trading veiw Does the deal with Tastytrade have something to do with this lack of progress?  
    • Well to me I feel that the  crypto market values transparency and reliable services. And Bitget has embraced this approach, attracting a large following,gaining up to 1.4million twitter followers,. Recent data shows significant growth in trading volume, solidifying its position in the market.  The exchanges  focus on user protection and satisfaction has fostered a loyal community. As the platform continues to evolve, its value may continue to grow. What are your thoughts on the importance of value in crypto, and what do you see as Bitget's future potential?
