Gold Price Futures (GC) Technical Analysis – Strengthens Over $1571.60, Weakens Under $1562.80

Based on the early price action and the current price at $1568.80, the direction of the April Comex gold market on Wednesday is likely to be determined by trader reaction to a pair of Gann angles at $1562.80 to $1571.60.

Gold futures are trading only slightly lower on Wednesday after clawing back most of its earlier losses. The market was pressured shortly after the opening as investor risk appetite picked up on reports of a decline in new coronavirus cases although concerns over its impact on the global economy persisted.

Gains are also being capped by upbeat comments from Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell on Tuesday, record highs in the global equity markets and firmer Treasury yields.

At 13:02 GMT, April Comex gold is trading $1568.80, down $1.20 or -0.08%.
