Gold Now Focused On $1,247 – Stronger Dollar Weighs

So far, it’s been a nice week for gold sellers as gold prices dipped below six month low, thanks to the Greenback, Fed and consistently changing fundamentals on the trade war. Today, one of the main catalysts behind a volatile and bearish move in gold is the latest update from Trump on Chinese investment restraint.

The U.S. President Trump sounded lenient as he announced that he will apply a strengthened security review process to cope with threats from Chinese investments to procure U.S. technologies instead of imposing restrictions. Additionally, we should focus on the Final GDP data from the U.S. as it may offer us another round of volatility today. Anyway, our forex trading signal on gold is doing well and heading towards our take profit level of $1,247.30
