GOLD Tests Support at $1,297 – a Good Idea to Go Long?
Arslan Butt • 1 min read
On Tuesday, the precious metal gold prices rose to $1,298, hovering close to a more than one-week high of $1,303 on a weaker dollar. There’s been very sharp movement in gold lately. It took a bullish turn above $1,284 support area to cross above $1,297. The volatility was triggered as the dollar softened and a rally in equities paused, while the market keeps a close watch on Sino-US trade talks.
Gold is trading mostly bearish around $1,287 as investors are saving their shots for the US CPI which is due on Wednesday. Gold may find immediate support at $1,297, $1,285 and $1,280. While on the upper hand, resistance prevails at $1,305. The market is likely to trade within the same range of $1,305- $1,285 until the release of US inflation report.
