Gold has had a tumultuous year, impacted by geopolitical tensions, inflation, interest rates, market sentiment, wavering supply and growing demand.

Zain Vawda, an analyst at DailyFX, posited from a technical perspective, gold is looking bullish for the commencement of 2024, but a lack of liquidity and volume could hamper a break of the $2080/oz resistance level.

Vawda said geopolitical tensions will likely remain the key driver of price for the rest of the week and is the only thing, in his opinion, that could push price above the $2080/oz area.

However, others outline improved risk appetite from investors, gained from potential rate cuts in the first quarter of 2024, will drive up gold prices.

Investing Haven predicts gold may near near $2,200 in 2024, citing factors such as the prevailing strength of the US Dollar, lower yields, and the ostensibly ‘bullish’ positioning of gold’s Commitments of Traders.

Although the future for the gold price is uncertain, Zain Vawda said that there are some key levels investors should keep their eyes on in 2024 in the wake of volatility.

Resistance Levels:

Support Levels:

$2080.00 USD/oz

$2100.00 USD/oz

$2143.40 USD/oz

$2058.00 USD/oz

$2050.00 USD/oz

$2030.00 USD/oz
