Gold continues to struggle with $1,300 as key barrier holds action in place

  • Precious metal balks at the prospect of picking a direction.
  • Market sentiment remains frozen in place as traders await Trump-Kim developments.

Gold continues to remain capped under the critical 1,300.00 level as the precious metal has failed to generate a convincing uptrend following a bottoming out at 1,282.00 in late May.

The only event of note for Tuesday that is concerning global markets is the Trump-Kim summit currently taking place in Singapore, and market participants are waiting for fresh headlines from the meeting as two of the world's most volatile and unpredictable leaders attempt to hash out a trade/denuclearization deal behind closed doors.
