Gold Price News and Forecast: XAU/USD (mostly) hinges on Trump´s electoral chances


Gold Price Analysis: XAU/USD pressured to break below $1,900

XAU/USD is open to start the week lower by some 0.10% despite a slide in the greenback on Friday by 0.20%. The market is range bound and trendless with election and stimulus uncertainty whipsawing prices from day-to-day.
