Gold's flag pattern needs confirmation

The price of gold is trading in the green at 1,776 on the H1 chart at the time of writing. It tries to rebound and recover after today's rally. It has climbed as much as 1,780 today where it has found resistance. The price action enabled a flag formation, but a downside movement is far from being confirmed.

Fundamentally, XAU/USD crashed yesterday after the US ISM Services PMI came in at 56.5 points versus the 53.5 expected. Today, the Reserve Bank of Australia increased the Cash Rate from 2.85% to 3.10% as expected. Tomorrow, the Australian GDP and the BOC represent high-impact events.

XAU/USD Bearish Pressure Remains High!

Technically, the rate failed to stay above the 1,786 key level signaling exhausted buyers. After its last sell-off, the rate rebounded, developing a potential flag. Today, it has found resistance at the weekly pivot point of 1,780 and it has failed to stabilize above the broken upside line.

The flag's downside line and 1,765 represent downside obstacles. Only a new higher high, jumping and stabilizing above the pivot point (1,780) may signal an upside continuation.

XAU/USD Outlook!

A new lower low, dropping and closing below 1,765 suggest a selling opportunity. This activates more declines.
