GOLD - 08 March 2019

Tags

Fundamental Highlights

Gold prices gained some positive traction on the last trading day of the week and was seen building on the overnight attempted bounce from over one-month lows. A fresh wave of global risk-aversion trade, as depicted by a sea of red across global equity markets, triggered by a sharp fall in Chinese exports data for February, turned out to be one of the key factors underpinning the precious metal's relative safe-haven demand. This coupled with a modest US Dollar pullback from YTD tops, touched in wake of dovish ECB-led slump in the shared currency, provided an additional boost to the Dollar-denominated commodity and remained supportive of the bullish intraday positive momentum.

Technical Analysis

Gold prices got freed from the tight consolidation and climbed above the $1990 level. Momentum turned bullish after it regained traction and looks the recovery will probably continue once the $1993.78 level will be violated. We will be focusing on the $1303.07 resistance level.

Support: 1291.83 / 1282.19
Resistance: 1293.78 / 1303.07
