Technical analysis update: XAUUSD (9th September 2021)

OANDA:XAUUSD   Gold Spot / U.S. Dollar
In recent days XAUUSD dropped below 1800 USD towards it short term support around 1785 USD. Since then it rebounded little bit and it currently trades around 1795 USD. In the big picture we are still very bullish on gold . Especially in medium-term and long-term. Although, XAUUSD failed to break above its short-term resistance and travel through its confirmation area we detailed in our previous thoughts. We are closely watching upper bound of the downward moving channel. We think this upper bound currently acts as strong support and if it is broken then more selling pressure is likely to occur. However, gold seems as its trend is further weakening and becoming neutral. We are getting strong notion that gold will remain stuck trading between 1750 USD and 1840 USD for indefinite amount of time. Despite that we remain bullish and exepct eventual breakout to the upside from this area. Because of that our short term price target remains 1850 USD while our medium term price target remains 1875 USD.

Technical analysis
Stochastic is bearish . MACD is in the bullish territory. However, it stages reversal and needs to be closely observed over the next few days. Crossover by MACD below 0 points would be bearish for gold in the short term. RSI is flattening, however, its short term structure remains bullish . ADX is very low suggesting neutral trend and sideways moving price action. Closest supports sit around 1785 USD and 1750 USD respectively. Major support sits at 1677.686 USD. Strong resistance appears around 1835 USD while another important resistance sits around 1916 USD. Overall technicals are mixed. As we mentioned previously we are getting strong notion that gold will trade sideways for while before finally new trend commences.
