“Looking forward, gold price is likely to waver in a narrow range as investors await fresh hints from the US ADP jobs data on the labor market recovery. Also, of note remains the US ISM Services PMI data, impacting the dollar valuations, in turn, gold price.”

“The downward-sloping 21-Simple Moving Average (SMA) at $1815 is testing the bulls’ commitment, as the range play above $1800 extends. On the other hand, the mildly bullish 50-SMA at $1810 is protecting the downside.”

“A sustained break above the 21-SMA could boost the buying interest, with gold bulls targeting the August 2 highs at $1820. However, the 50-SMA support caves in on a sustained basis, then gold could see a sharp drop towards the ascending 200-SMA at $1799. Ahead of that the August 2 lows of $1806 could be put at test.”
