XAUUSD – Gold Price Trend Before Non Farm Payrolls


Lately, gold price has responded with lower economic numbers, because the recent economic numbers reflect the impact of the outbreak of Covid-19, and gold prices have already responded to the role of safe haven. However, last night, gold prices returned to meet with economic numbers again. The expected number of US unemployed last week was 3 million, resulting in gold prices moving up slightly before the announcement. When the number announced was 3.169 million, higher than expected, gold prices moved up to test the resistance zone at 1722.

The number of unemployment claims came out higher than expected, resulting in yesterday’s USDIndex closing below 100.00.

As for the technical perspective, in the H4 time frame from the rise of gold prices last night Until it can break through the trend line upwards (dotted line) upwards, resulting in the price frame being seen again. The first resistance is at 1722, which should be strong enough to cap the price in the Asian and European sessions but may not to be strong enough for the US market. The non-farm payroll numbers will be announced later with a forecast of up to -22 million. If the price goes up, there is a chance to see a test of the high zone at 1736, in line with the rising MACD trend which has been in positive territory since yesterday.

But if the result is the opposite, today’s first support will be at 1710, which, if breached, there is a chance to see the price move down to the lower boundary of the 1695 channel.
