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...
