Gold technical outlook
On the four-hour chart, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) indicator is rising toward 60, suggesting that XAU/USD has more room on the upside before becoming technically oversold.
$1,783 (Fibonacci 23.6% retracement of the latest uptrend) aligs as the initial hurdle ahead of $1,790 (static resistance and $1,800 (psychological level). Supports, on the other hand, are located at $1,775 (Fibonacci 38.2% retracement/20-period SMA), $1,767 (100-period SMA/Fibonacci 50% retracement) and $1,760 (Fibonacci 61.8% retracement).
