Gold, widely considered an antithesis to fiat currencies, finds no takers despite rising odds of US-China currency war. Further, are there signs of life? What does the following 20 July Gold Price Technical Analysis reveal?
20 July, GKFX – At press time, the yellow metal is trading at $1,218.70, having clocked a one-year low of $1,211.65 yesterday.
Prices have dropped more than 10 percent in the last three months despite US-China trade war, triggering speculation the yellow metal is losing its safe haven appeal.
Are there signs of life?
Further, it is showing no signs of life even though the US and China are closing on a full-blown currency war. The People’s Bank of China (PBOC) is increasingly favoring a weaker Yuan and that could force the Trump administration to retaliate in kind.
Moreover, President Trump has already expressed concerns regarding Fed rate hikes. That said, the oversold technical conditions, as shown by the relative strength index (RSI) could put a bid under gold prices.
