Gold Daily Price Chart (June 19 - September 13, 2020)

On August 6, Gold rallied to an all-time high at $2,075 then corrected lower and developed a continuation pattern (ascending triangle) highlighting that XAU/USD may resume bullish price action if breaks and remains above the upper line of the triangle.

Alongside that, the market has failed - since August 19 - on multiple occasions to close below the low end of the current $1,921- $2,015 trading zone. Therefore, Gold could rally towards the high end of the aforementioned trading zone at $2,015.

With that said, a close below the low end of the zone ie, below $1,921 reflects weaker bulls and possibly sends Gold towards $1,859.

On September 3, Gold broke below the bullish trendline support originating from the August 26 low at $1,902 and generated a bearish signal. However, on September 9 the price created a higher low and returned to trade in a sideways move.

To conclude, while current bias remains neutral, there is a good base to think that bulls may retake the initiative as discussed above on the daily chart. A break above $1,976 may trigger a rally towards $2,009, while a break below $1,898 could send XAU/USD even lower towards $1,862.
