Gold Strives to Stay Above $1,200 while Risk Appetite Heightens
Arslan Butt • 1 min read
GOLD is trading slightly bearish on Friday but still holds near a more than 10-week high on weaker dollar. The sinking of stock markets has led people to seek gold as a safe haven especially after a drop in the US inflation rate. A weaker CPI figure has put a question market on the further rate hikes in 2019.
I was looking to trade the potential retracement until 38.2% Fibo level of $1,211. As you can see, gold is already coming out of the overbought zone after making a couple of doji and bearish engulfing candles at the top. This signifies a potential for a bearish retracement.
Key Trading Level: 1214.18
