Gold prices on Comex staged a sharp reversal in the Asian session, having dropped sharply from near three-week tops to surrender $ 1230 barrier.
Gold back below 5-DMA at $ 1230
Currently, gold drops -0.40% to $ 1228.85, having posted daily tops at $ 1235.15. Gold prices came under tremendous selling pressure in Asia, after the risk conditions witnessed a dramatic turnaround, following the reports of Macron winning the first French presidential debate, which calmed fears over a potential French exit from the European Union (EU).
Although losses remain capped amid a broadly weaker US dollar and negative Asian indices, while subdued trading activity around the treasury yields also keep the downside cushioned.
Next of note for the major remains the FOMC member Dudley’s speech and US current account data, which will have significant impact on the yellow metal.
