Gold Price Forecast for the week

Gold Price Forecast

by Sachin Gupta Last Updated: 2022-12-16T17:45:26+05:30

Gold price has extended its losses in the Asian market after U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell said the central bank is fully committed to bringing prices under control, adding that the central bank would take any necessary move to restore price stability. Now, the investors are expecting an aggressive interest rate hike in the coming month, which could dent the yellow metal prices.

On the COMEX division, overall, the yellow metal is range bound, trading below $1840 per ounce over aggressive Fed rate hike expectation & recession fears. Geopolitical tensions & rising concerns of economic slowdown are likely to support yellow metal. Gold has support at $1825 & $1816, while resistance is at $1852 / $1865 levels.

Gold Price Chart


On the domestic front, MCX Gold price has traded in a narrow range with Symmetrical Triangle patterns on the daily timeframe. Also, movement below 100 SMA & Middle Bollinger Band suggests probability of further selling pressure in the near term.

The momentum indicator RSI (14) shifted below the 50 mark and Stochastic witnessed a negative crossover, which is an indication of a downward trend for the short term. So based on the above aspect, a follow up move below 50500 could drag the prices towards 50150/49800 levels. However, on the upside, 51200 would act as immediate resistance for the counter. Traders are advised to trade cautiously for the coming week and look for a sell on rise strategy from a short term perspective.
