Daily Technical Insights 29 July 2022



The metal, XAUUSD, gathers bullish momentum for the second day after the US data showed that the economy contracted in the second quarter, thus boosting XAUUSD.

From the technical perspective, XAUUSD builds on the overnight upside rebound above the resistance of 1748. The upward breakout gained some follow-through traction on Thursday. The four-hour outlook turns bullish as XAUUSD lands within the upper bounce of the Bollinger band and the RSI indicator hovers within the positive territory. XAUUSD might consolidate slightly above and below 1748 as the RSI has reached the overbought condition. Stably sustaining above the level would support XAUUSD’s upside.

Resistance: 1769, 1790, 1815

Support: 1748, 1722, 1680


USDJPY falls sharply following the less hawkish Fed.

Resistance: 134.75, 136.52, 137.06, 137.61

Support: 134.34

On the flip side, USDCAD needs to trade above the immediate hurdle of 1.2896 in order to claim its bullish stance.

Resistance: 1.2896, 1.2959, 1.3009

Support: 1.2795
