Gold Price Forecast
“On Tuesday, the ISM Services PMI data will be looked upon for fresh impetus. Investors are likely to ignore the headline figure unless there is a big divergence from the market consensus of 62.3. The Prices Paid Index, once again, will be the key figure to watch. A stronger-than-expected print could allow the greenback to continue to gather strength.”
“On Wednesday, the FOMC will release the minutes of its June meeting, during which policymakers have made a hawkish shift in the policy outlook. Unless this publication offers a dovish surprise, the USD should be able to keep its firm footing and limit gold’s rebound.”
“A daily close above $1,790 (100-day SMA) could open the door for additional gains toward $1,800 (psychological level, Fibonacci 50% retracement of April-June uptrend) ahead of $1,815 (20- day SMA).” “The initial support is located at $1,770 (Fibonacci 61.8% retracement) before $1,750 (June 29 low). In case sellers drag the price below the latter, the next target is located at $1,735 (static level).”
