On Thursday, our forex trading signals on gold did pretty well to help us secure two take profits, but the market continued with its bearish trend. Perhaps, investors priced in the positive forecast for the US labor market data.
For the moment, you can see a tug of war between bulls and bears.The market is likely to trade in the same range of $1,196 – $1,203 until the release of labor market figures.

Technically speaking, gold completed 61.8% retracement at $1,196. 50 periods and the 50 periods EMA is also supporting the yellow metal at $1,196. The doji candle above $1,196 is signaling a neutral sentiment of investors. The RSI is coming out of an oversold zone, which may drive buying in gold.
