Gold is consolidating in a narrowly mixed trading range as investors await the US labour market figures coming tomorrow. The US is not expected to release any high impact economic event today so it’s best to trade the technicals. Who’s ready?

Technical Outlook – Bullish Reversal Candles

On the 4-Hour chart, Gold formed a hammer candlestick pattern. This particular pattern is followed by a strong bearish trend and typically weakens the bearish momentum. It won’t be wrong to expect a bullish reversal in Gold after the hammer pattern. Check FX Leaders Candlestick Strategy for further information.

Gold – XAU/USD – Trading Idea

We may experience a choppy session today in Gold so stay bullish above $1,324 with a target of $1,329. On the upside, $1,330 looks like a strong selling point.

Good luck!
