Gold rallies to $1350, the highest since September. What has driven the precious meal to this level is revealed in the 24 January Gold Price Technical Forecast.
24 January, GKFX – Gold continued gained bullish traction through the mid-European session and rose to its strongest level in more than 4-months.
• Heavy USD selling remains supportive of the up-move.
• Reviving safe-haven demand provides an additional boost.
A broadly weaker US Dollar, which extended its downward spiral after the US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s comments, remained supportive of the ongoing bullish run-up for the dollar-denominated commodity.
Adding to this, the prevalent cautious sentiment around equity markets, amid growing worries over a possible trade war, was seen benefitting traditional safe-haven assets and further collaborated to the precious metal’s strong up-move to $1350 area, a level not seen since Sept. 8.
With the USD price dynamics turning out to be a key driver, investors now look forward to Thursday’s key event risk – ECB meeting, for fresh directional impetus. The highly anticipated ECB decision might provide clues to the central bank’s plan to end its massive economic stimulus program and eventually influence demand for the non-yielding yellow metal.
