Focus on XAU/USD today.
Fundamentally, yesterday the United States released ISM data on the service industry, just like the market outlook shared on Monday. The Fed is currently looking for data support. Consumption is one of the three economic carriages in the United States. The good performance of the ISM service industry PMI will greatly stimulate the bullish trend of the US dollar. The PMI data unexpectedly strengthened in August to 54.5, reflecting sustained strength in consumer demand and the overall economy and strengthening hopes that the United States can avoid recession. It also brings potential signs that inflation will still rise, and the dollar will maintain a certain bullish trend until the data is digested this week.
Technically, the gold finally fell below the 33-day and 7-day moving average yesterday, and the market’s short trend is relatively clear.

The stochastic oscillator also sent a short signal, and the market on the daily chart has a probability of going back to the moving average lines during the Asian session.

On the 4-hour chart, after the market peaked and fell below the neckline this week, the moving average lines subsequently made a dead cross which is kind of short signal. It is worth noting that the stochastic oscillator currently indicates that the market is about to bottom out, and there is a certain probability of rebound or consolidation.
