What’s up, traders.

Gold continues to trade bullish at $1,211 on weaker dollar concerns. As you know, gold shares a negative correlation with the Greenback, which the investors seem to move their funds into the safer assets and gold is the best option.

On the 2 hour chart, gold has already violated the strong resistance level of $1,207. Most importantly, gold has formed doji candles right above the resistance come support level of $1,207 which is clearly signaling the bullish intentions of investors. Whereas, the 20 periods of EMA is also supporting the buying trends.
