Gold Darts Past $950/oz in the Wake of Positive Data
The EUR/USD broke out to the upside after positive PMI data, and gold responded. The precious metal rode past our 3rd tier uptrend and 2nd tier downtrend lines on its way to $950/oz. However, Gold’s rally is pausing after better than expected U. S. Existing Home Sales data caused the Dollar to appreciate. Gold is not quite sure which direction to head in with the Dollar appreciating and the S&P futures setting fresh 2009 highs.
Hence, the precious metal is in a correlative flux. Regardless, today’s movement is certainly positive and shows gold is still in a medium-term uptrend despite recent weakness. That being said, the precious metal must deal with a couple strong technical obstacles to the topside.
