Gold price reversed an early dip to $1530 area and has now climbed to the top end of its daily trading range.

This coupled with a modest US Dollar uptick exerted some downward pressure on the dollar-denominated commodity and collaborated to the early downtick, albeit concerns about global economic growth helped limit further losses.
The ongoing fall in the longer-term US Treasury bond yields deepened the inversion of the US yield curve to the lowest level since 2007 and continued fueling worries about a recession and underpinned the non-yielding yellow metal.
However, the fact that the US President Donald Trump softened his tone against China and predicted that the two countries will be able to reach a trade deal might keep a lid on any strong up-move, at least for the time being.
Hence, it will be prudent to wait for a follow-through buying before traders start positioning for the resumption of the prior bullish trajectory amid absent relevant market-moving US economic releases on Wednesday.
