Gold Price Forecast: XAU/USD to gain traction on prolonged Russia-Ukraine war.

Following an impressive rally to its highest level since September 2020 at $1,974 on Thursday, gold declined below $1,900 on Friday and ended up snapping a three-week winning streak. The yellow metal is set to continue its move higher on protracted tensions in Ukraine, FXStreet’s Eren Sengezer reports.

Technical outlook remains bullish as long as $1,870 support holds.“In case Russia reaffirms its intention to look for a diplomatic solution and refrains from advancing its troops early next week, gold is likely to face additional selling pressure. On the flip side, a prolonged military conflict with Russia’s intention to take over Kyiv and additional sanctions from the west could support the precious metal.”

“The initial support is located at $1,870 (static level, ascending trend line). In case XAU/USD makes a daily close below that level it could extend its slide toward $1,850 (static level, 20-day SMA).”“On the upside, $1,900 (psychological level) aligns as first resistance. If buyers managed to flip that level into support, $1,910 (static level) could be seen as the next hurdle before $1,920 (static level).”
