Gold Technical Update

Previous: Gold Continues Recovery from Range Support(5/18)

XAU/USD (Gold)

Our last gold update noted 1600 as a key pivot to monitor for the recovery form the 1530 range support. The market indeed held the rally from going above. As the 5/22 US session progresses, it is trading down below 1550. It seems poised to retest the range support. Perhaps the lack of stimulus in Japan gave way to the current drop, because if central banks crank up stimulus measures, gold should rally against the increased supply of fiat(printable) currency.

The daily chart shows the market again approaching our range support which goes down to 1522. If we get a bullish divergence with central banks increasing stimulus talk/action, expect some support and another push toward the 1600 area.
