Gold Technical Analysis – January-2-2024 | 4H Chart

Technical Indicators Signal Uncertainty

In the XAUUSD 4-hour chart, we notice the pair crossed below the bullish channel, which could signify a longer halt in continuing the uptrend.

Technical indicators give a range of market signals. The RSI indicator hovers around the middle line, and the Awesome oscillator bars are small and cling to the signal line. Both indicators show uncertainty. Interestingly, the ADX indicator’s signal clears the air. The ADX line is near the 20 level, a transparent sign of no trend in the gold market.

The Bearish Scenario

The pullback from 2,088 dollars can be considered the start of a consolidation phase. The 50% Fibonacci level supports the main bullish trend, which began in mid-December 2023. If the gold price crosses below the 50% level, the decline will extend to the lower band of the bearish channel, followed by the 38.2% Fibonacci support.

The Bullish Scenario

If the $2,088 resistance plays the main hurdle for the bulls. They need to break the level to pave the way to $2,109.
