XAU/USD strongly bullish ahead of FOMC

The price of gold rallied in the last hour as the USD depreciated after the US data. The yellow metal was strongly bullish since yesterday as the USD took a hit from the CB Consumer Confidence and from the Chicago PMI indicators.

Today, the US reported mixed data. The ADP Non-Farm Employment Change came in at 106K versus the 176K expected, ISM Manufacturing PMI came in at 47.4 points below the 48.0 expected, while JOLTS Job Openings increased from 10.44M to 11.01M.

Later, the FOMC represents the most important event. The FOMC Statement and FOMC Press Conference should bring sharp movements in Gold.

Gold Upside Continuation!

This image is no longer relevant

Technically, the price of gold registered a valid breakout above the descending pitchfork's upper median line (uml). It has tested and retested the broken resistance and now it challenges the weekly pivot point (1,929).

The false breakdown with great separation below 1,923 and through the upper median line (uml) confirmed strong upside pressure.

XAU/USD Forecast!

1,933 represents an upside obstacle. Jumping and closing above validate an upside continuation and offer new long opportunities. The R1 (1,947) and 1,949 serve as upward targets.
