Two Winners in Gold – Who’s Ready for the Next?
Arslan Butt • 1 min read
On Wednesday, the precious metal gold surged from the previous session’s low, pulled up by uncertainty over US-China trade tensions. Meanwhile, trade tensions and a rise in US consumer confidence supported the dollar even as weakness in equity markets limited losses for the metal.
Gold’s path was mixed after failure to break $1,286 level-technicals. US President Donald Trump remarked at a news conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe that the US is “not ready to make a deal with China,” sinking hopes of a trade agreement between the world’s biggest economies. Whereas, China is ready to retaliate.
GOLD is surging over risk off sentiments, and the technical side is suggesting the next target around 1,287/88. Zooming out on the 3-hour chart, gold is crossing above 200 and 50 periods moving averages. While the Stochastic and RSI are heading north, crossing over 50 and suggesting a bullish bias.
Key Trading Level: 1280.62
Gold – XAU/USD – Trade Idea
So far, we have closed two winning trades in gold, and now looking for an opportunity to enter the third one. Gold has an excellent resistance around 1,287/88 and a closing below this level may give us a sell opportunity.
