Gold – XAU/USD – Fundamental Outlook

Despite the violation of asymmetric triangle pattern, gold prices remained steady as the U.S. President Donald Trump and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker confirmed to work towards reducing trade barriers, relaxing immediate concerns about global trade tensions.

Are you wondering how this impacts gold? Let me help you with it. The meeting between Trump and Juncker was hiking uncertainties. The failure of this meeting was supposed to drive safe-haven demand in the market, but fortunately, things went in the favor of both economies.

Trump announced, “We agreed today, first of all, to work together toward zero tariffs, zero non-tariff barriers and zero subsidies on non-auto industrial goods.”

Gold – XAU/USD – Technical Outlook

The technical side of the market hasn’t changed a lot. Gold has come out of the asymmetric triangle pattern to face resistance near $1,234 and that’s where we recommended entering a sell position. For now, gold can slide down to complete the retracement until $1,228. We can expect a pullback above this above $1,228 or $1,225. The RSI and Stochastics are directing a bullish trend.
