Gold Mid-Range as US-China Trade Talks Move Forward

Gold traders are seemingly ignoring commentary coming out of Beijing with the precious metal refusing to move lower. Chinese President Xi spoke overnight about the need for ongoing dialogue to resolve the current US-China trade dispute, adding that China would widen access to a range of markets, strengthen intellectual property protection an, lower auto import taxes and expand imports. This more placatory tone set the equity bulls running with gains seen in Europe across the board.

Gold Ignoring the Chinese Risk-On Memo

Gold however refused to take a leg lower and currently trades either side of 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level at $1,335.5/oz. and in the middle of the recent $1,301/oz. - $1,366/oz. trading range. The stochastic indicator is also mid-market, but pointing higher, while IG Client Sentiment shows 70.3% of retail traders are long – normally a bearish contrarian signal - but not as long as yesterday.
