The precious metal has opened above the old resistance trendline which should now turn supportive. The first level of resistance is seen between $1,518/oz. and $1,520/oz. before the late-September double top around $1,535/oz. comes into play. Support seen from $1,500/oz. down to the trendline around $1,495/oz.
The economic data and events calendar this week is packed full of high importance US releases. While the gold/US dollar correlation holds, these releases, including US Q3 GDP, FOMC and non-farm payroll data, all have the ability to change the outlook for gold. The precious metal may also come under pressure from any updates about the ongoing US-China trade war, with progress said to be being made at the moment.
