Gold prices have come off sharply over the past several days, dropping from above $1,825 at the start of this week to current levels. A strengthening U.S. dollar, rising 10-year U.S. bond yields (which are now at pre-pandemic levels), better than expected economic data, ongoing vaccinations in the U.S. and the world, potential demand weakness in China in coming weeks following the Lunar New Year, and an improvement in the economic outlook are all weighing on prices. In addition, gold prices are increasingly appearing weak as technical support levels continue to be broken.
Prices have the potential to recover from current levels, similar to what occurred in late November and early December. There will have to be shift in current technicals and sentiment for this to occur, however. Investors might step in as bargain buyers, but if support levels continue to be broken, the next stop for prices might be between $1,720 and $1,740.
