Chart of the day - GOLD (19.04.2021)

Gold enjoyed a strong upward move last week but has run into a resistance at 38.2% retracement of the latest downward impulse on Friday. Precious metal continues to test this hurdle at the start of a new week. Moreover, $1,790 and $1,800 resistance levels can be found slightly above the aforementioned retracement. Gold looks to be executing a double bottom pattern following a break above the neckline of the pattern last week. A potential target of the pattern can be found at $1,833.

In case gold fails to break above the aforementioned 38.2% retracement and pullback starts, the first near-term support to watch is marked with the upward trendline. Yields are key drivers for gold price but traders should also track flows in and out of precious metals ETFs.
