Gold price rallied from a 3-month low last week. The US core inflation rate came in higher than expected, causing the gold price to break below the critical support level of 2000 and drop close to 1980. However, the release of the disappointing US retail sales data pushed the gold price back above 2000 (1) on Thu., ending the week near 2013. The main event on the economic calendar this week will be the release of the US Fed. Meeting minutes on Wed. Not expecting any surprising content, the dominant factors will remain to be “observing the data,” “waiting for more evidence,” and “the timing of rate cuts being slower than market expectations,” which are mostly bearish for gold, pulling the gold price down in S-T.

1-hour chart – An S-T upward channel(3) has formed in the past 24 hours. At the Asian session today, the gold price has broken through the previously mentioned downward resistance(2) and resistance zone (2.1). There are signs of accelerating buying pressure, and the price has already moved above the channel(3). The S-T target can be set at last Tue’s high near 2028(4), where the next upside target is at the resistance zone (5). With the US holiday on Monday, the market volume may be reduced.
