    XAU/USD

    ØGold attracts some dip-buying near the $1,770 area on Wednesday and steadily climbs back closer to its highest level since mid-August touched the previous day. The XAUUSD holds steady above the $1,780 level through the early North American session, though a slight recovery in the risk sentiment keeps a lid on any further gains.

    ØThe US Dollar (USD) fails to capitalize on the overnight bounce from a three-month low and meets with a fresh supply, which, in turn, offers some support to the dollar-denominated Gold. The markets now seem convinced that the Federal Reserve (Fed) will hike interest rates at a slower pace in the coming months amid signs of easing inflationary pressures. The speculations were fueled by a surprise drop in US consumer inflation during October. Furthermore, Tuesday’s softer PPI reinforces the peak inflation narrative and continues to weigh on the buck.

    ØThe repricing of the pace of the Fed’s rate-hiking cycle, meanwhile, keeps the US Treasury bond yields depressed. In fact, the yield on the benchmark 10-year US government bond languishes near its lowest level for the yield since October 5. This is seen as another factor undermining the USD and leading additional support to the non-yielding yellow metal. The intraday uptick, however, lacks bullish conviction. This, in turn, makes it prudent to wait for some follow-through buying before traders start positioning for any extension of a two-week-old strong uptrend.

    ØGold price stabilized around 1779, up for the day and bullish in the daily chart. The gold price stabilized above 20 and 50 SMA, suggesting bullish strength. Meanwhile, the 20 SMA started turning north and heading towards longer ones, indicating bulls not exhausted yet. On upside, the immediate resistance is 1787, break above this level will open the gate to extend the advance to 1800 area.

    ØFrom a technical perspective, the RSI indicator hold above the midline and stabilized around 71, suggesting bullish strength. The Momentum indicator stabilized above the midline, suggests upward potentials. On downside, the immediate support is 1732, below this area may resume the decline to 1700.
