A comparative examination of the strength of the US-Dollar often gives tangible insight into the direction of Gold (XAUUSD). The chart above indicates the expectation of a bullish price reaction from the demand zone. Increased strength for the Dollar simply implies possible bearish reactions for Gold. With this in mind, let's take a look at the Gold (XauUsd) chart.

XAUUSD - DAILY

The daily timeframe presents an interesting scenario with the joint confluence of the Pivot zone and the drop-base-drop supply zone - not to forget the 200-Day Moving Average too. These factors line up perfectly in favour of a bearish reversal from the marked zone. Let's take a deeper dive into the lower timeframe price action though.

The 4-Hour timeframe shows price wedged between two trendlines but a lower timeframe view makes an even clearer impression.

H1 TIMEFRAME

Here on the H1, price seems to be creating an AMD (Accumulation-Manipulation-Distribution) pattern over here which also serves as a bearish confirmation. Profit targets are; 1785, 1765, and 1755.

Usually, the Dollar and GOLD are negatively correlated. This means that the stronger the US-Dollar becomes, the lower Gold prices will be as many more investors will prefer liquid investments. Times of crises and the need to safeguard funds are the major exceptions to this.
