Gold Price News and Forecast: XAU/USD - Coronavirus hits China’s gold jewelry demand


GOLD Should Bounce From the W L3 Camarilla

1557-1560 is still the POC zone where Gold buyers might be waiting. The price might bounce towards 1566 and 1574. If 1574 breaks we could see 1582 W H3 pivot retest. A deeper retracement might follow only if 1555 breaks lower. In that case watch for 1552 and 1544. Read more...

The demand for gold jewelry in the world’s top consumer, China, is likely to plunge this year, as the China coronavirus negatively affects the shoppers’ sentiment, per Bloomberg.
