      Gold Weekly Forecast: Eyes $1,750 on NFP-inspired USD strength

      Gold (XAU/USD) bounces off intraday low towards regaining $1,730 level, up 0.06% on a day during a bearish consolidation play amid early Wednesday. Even so, the yellow metal remains on the back foot, fading the corrective pullback from the multi-day bottom, marked on Monday, amid broad US dollar strength.

      The US Dollar Index (DXY) printed a four-day winning streak to poke July‘s high as the passage of US President Joe Biden’s infrastructure spending joins Fed policymakers cautious optimism, favoring concerns over tapering and rate hike.

      The greenback gauge recently eased as the US Republicans pledged, as per the Wall Street Journal (WSJ), to not support Democrats over the debt ceiling plan. This indicates further policy deadlocks and the risk of the US government offices shut-down as the current budget plans expired in early August. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer conveyed the policymakers readiness to return early from the break to tackle the budget concerns if passed by the Senate.

      On the other hand, comments from US Atlanta Federal Reserve President Raphael Bostic, Richmond Fed President Thomas Barkin and Chicago Fed President Charles Evans signal that the tapering is a favorite among the Fed policymakers.

      It‘s worth mentioning that Australia’s successive record high infections and the recent jumps in the covid numbers from China and India, the world's largest customers of gold, exert additional downside pressure on the yellow metal prices.

      To portray the markets mood, the US 10-year Treasury yields remain firmer around a one-month high whereas S&P 500 Futures drop 0.11%, which in turn put a safe-haven bid under the DXY.

      Although gold bears are likely to keep the reins, todays US Consumer Price Index (CPI) for July, expected to ease from 0.9% MoM to 0.5%, will be important to determine short-term moves.

      Technical analysis

      Although an ascending trend line from early March joined the oversold RSI conditions to challenge golds slump earlier in the week, bearish MACD and failures to cross a four-month-old horizontal hurdle keep the metal sellers hopeful.

      The latest weakness aims for the $1,700 before the stated support line, around $1,688, question the gold bears.

      In a case where the commodity prices remain weak past $1,688, the yearly low surrounding $1,676 and late April 2020 bottom close to $1,660 will be in focus.

      Meanwhile, an upside clearance of the stated horizontal resistance around near $1,755-60 will direct the quote towards the late July lows near $1,789 and then to Aprils peak of $1,798 before highlighting the $1,800 threshold.

      If at all gold buyers keep reins beyond $1,800, double tops near $1,835 will be crucial to watch.
