A quick recovery in the greenback weighed on the renewed demand for gold, sending the rate lower from post-Trump win highs reached at $ 1164.25, although the bulls managed to find some fresh bids last minutes.
Gold eyes $ 1170 barrier
Currently, Comex gold futures rise +0.38% to 1162.55, reversing a brief dip to 1159 levels. The bullion prolongs its upward trajectory in an environment of slackening USD demand, as investors look take profits-off the table on USD longs created in wake of a Trump win and hawkish Fed.
Moreover, negative tone seen around the Asian markets and softer US treasury yields keep any downside short-lived. From a wider perspective, gold found fresh buyers recently as markets turn skeptical over the Trump’s policies as he is set to take office on 20th Jan.
Comex Gold Technical Levels
