Do you want to play a game? Plot an equilateral channel on the H4 gold chart: its lower line starts on January 15 low (1 825) and goes through the recent low like in the image (1 850). Then, plot another one: it would start at the support of 1 825 on December 15 and go upwards pinching through the following lows as indicated. Do you see any difference between the trajectories? Their inclination is pretty much the same. Does it suggest that the gold price is in the upward trajectory and may reach 1 875 and 1 900 soon? Yes - there are fundamental reasons for gold ro rise.
In the previous uptrend, the gold price went from 1 825 to 1 900 in approximately two weeks. Therefore, If the scenario repeats, we will have gold at 1 900 by mid-February. So, if you are willing to test this hypothesis, ready to wait for a couple of weeks and your account may withstand the fluctuations on the way - you buy at current price or wait for it to go down to 1 850 (it's still probable) and set your Take Profit/Sell below 1 900.

Many investors treated gold as a protection against inflation. However, last week, gold lost its major support and dropped despite rising inflation. Why did it act like this?
First, "ETH merge" Google requests are on the rise. At the same time, "buy ETH" requests are at their two-year lows, which is quite a negative factor ahead of the vast update. The community either doesn’t believe in the success, or they are following the "buy the rumors – sell the news" rule and waiting for the massive dump after the merge.
