Gold forecast

XAU/USD could jump higher if it prints a bullish pattern at 1,750 or on the lower median line (lml). A false break with great separation, a pin bar, or a major bullish engulfing could signal a new upside momentum.

Making a valid breakdown below the immediate support levels could invalidate potential growth and could bring new short opportunities.
