XAU/USD Technical Analysis

As of this writing, the precious metal is being traded near $1275 an ounce. A hurdle can be noted near $1300, a key psychological level ahead of $1357, the high of the last major upside rally on the daily chart and then $1400, the psychological level. A break and daily closing above the $1400 level shall trigger renewed buying interest, validating a rally towards the $1440 resistance zone.

On the downside, a support may be noted around $1288, an immediate horizontal support ahead of $1280, the 50% fib level as well as another key horizontal support area and then $1200, a major psychological number. The technical bias shall remain bullish as long as the $1200 support area is intact.

RBA Interest Rate

The Reserve Bank of Australia has left official interest rates on hold for a fourteenth consecutive month with no sign it is in a hurry to increase them anytime soon. Following its regular monthly meeting, governor Philip Lowe confirmed official rates would remain at 1.5 percent. In a statement, Dr. Lowe said there were signs of a lift in non-mining business investment that would feed into the broader economy.

Employment growth was strong on the back of more jobs and increasing labor force participation across the entire country.

Trade Idea

Considering the overall technical and fundamental outlook, buying the precious metal around current levels appears to be a good strategy in short to medium term.
