Gold quickly reversed the post-US CPI slide to the $1,870 area, or weekly lows and refreshed daily tops in the last hour, albeit lacked follow-through buying. XAU/USD was last seen trading just below the $1,890 level, down nearly 0.15% for the day. Despite hotter-than-expected US consumer inflation figures, investors seem aligned with the Fed's transitory narrative and that pricing pressures will abate later in the year. This, in turn, prompted some fresh selling around the US dollar and provided a goodish lift to dollar-denominated commodities, including gold.
Failures to sustained the bounce off an ascending support line from March join the most bearish MACD signals in three months to keeps gold sellers hopeful.
However, a downside break near $1,883 won't be enough for gold bears' return as the stated trend line support, close to $1,871, could also restrict the commodity's further declines. In a case where the quote drops below $1,871, the early May's top near $1,845 should return to the chart.
Alternatively, corrective pullback needs to cross a 12-day-long horizontal line near the $1,900 threshold to recall the gold buyers.Also acting as an upside filter is the latest swing high $1,916.62, a break of which will aim for the yearly top near $1,960 with $1,935 likely acting as a buffer.
