Gold Price Forecast – April 16, 2020

The long-term outlook for gold is bullish and prices are still poised to eventually challenge targets above $1800. However, confluent resistance was met around the $1788.8 high, at which point a daily evening star reversal pattern and several bearish divergences formed. In addition, the intra-day wave down from $1788.8 fulfilled its smaller than (0.618) at today’s $1722.0 swing low. This implies that after a brief upward correction gold should fall to $1696 before the move up eventually continues. Support at $1676 is expected to hold, though a close below this would call for a more substantial test of support before prices rally again.

For now, resistance at $1748 is expected to hold and $1764 is key. Settling above $1764 would call for a move above the $1768 swing high. This would invalidate the wave down from $1788.8 that projects to $1696 and lower. This would also clear the way for the move up to extend to $1782 and likely $1796, the last threshold protecting $1800.
