Today, the economic events from the United States may get us some good trades in the Gold.

  • PPI m/m – The Bureau of Labor Statistics will release the producer price index at 13:30(GMT).
  • Core PPI m/m – It’s expected to be 0.2% vs. 0.3% in the past, whereas, the higher figure will support the US dollar.
  • Unemployment Claims – You should monitor the jobless claims at 13:30 (GMT), although these aren’t expected to surprise the market.

Technical Outlook

  • At the moment, the yellow metal Gold is holding right below the solid resistance level of $1,326.
  • The 50- periods EMA is supporting the Gold above $1,310. However, you can see the divergence between EMA and CMP (current market price).
  • The Stochastics are in the overbought zone and the spinning top on the daily chart are supporting the selling bias for the Gold.

Gold // XAUUSD – Trading Plan

Today, the $1,316 is a good level to monitor. Below this, I will be looking to enter a sell position with a stop above $1,319 and take profit of $1,311 and $1,307. Whereas, Gold will stay bullish above $1,316 until $1,322 and $1,326. Good luck.
