XAU/USD Technical Outlook – 19, Jan

The XAU/USD pair trades flat for the day, with no signs of giving up further ground. The daily chart shows that technical indicators corrected extreme overbought readings before turning flat well into positive territory without signaling more weakness ahead. At the same time, the 20 SMA heads north almost vertically, far below the current level while above the longer ones, reflecting buyers’ strength.

The 4-hour chart suggests the pair could fall further in the near term. It was unable to sustain gains above a mildly bullish 20 SMA and is back below the indicator, although still far above a bullish 100 SMA, currently at around $1,858.15. Finally, technical indicators turned south and pierced their midlines, maintaining their firmly bearish slopes within neutral levels. A break below the daily low at $1,890.54 could see the current corrective decline extending towards the $1,850 region.
