In One Session, Price of Gold Rose by Approximately $60


The opening price on Friday was around 1,870, the closing price was around 1,930. The reason for the rapid growth of the XAU/USD quote is geopolitical tension. Israeli forces announced a ground operation in the Gaza Strip, which may be why before the weekend the markets were dominated by the forces of demand for gold as a defensive asset.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry said Israel's actions went beyond self-defense. And the famous investor Ray Dalio expressed the opinion that the risk of global war is 50% due to the situation in the Middle East.

The XAU/USD chart shows that the price of gold has reached the upper limit of the downward channel.

→ the price of gold may encounter resistance from the upper border;
→ the price may roll back from the overbought zone, which is indicated by the stochastic oscillator;
→ the price may be supported by the psychological level of 1,900;
→ support may be provided by the level of 1,885; previously the price formed reversals from it.

However, the main driver of the price of gold will likely remain the fundamental factor. Steps aimed at resolving the military conflict will help ensure that the price of gold remains within the descending channel that has been in effect since the first half of the year.
