Chinese New Year – Physical Demand Sentiment Dominates

On Feb 16, our Chineses friends will be celebrating the New Year. Being one of the world’s top Gold consumer, the Chinese buyers typically trigger physical demand for Gold near New Year. Therefore, the Gold is likely to stay supported on the back of Chinese physical demand sentiments.


Technical Factors In Play

Secondly, on a daily timeframe, the Gold is supported above $1,307/1300 zone. It can be hard for Gold to break below these levels, particularly when the market is trading in the oversold territory.
