The euro is fundamentally weak
How to trade gold?
Information is not investment advice
XAU/USD has paused its advance in February and since then has been trading in a triangle-like fashion. It looks like the precious metal is not ready to continue the big uptrend, at least for now.
The price turned up from support around 1,286 on Friday but failed to get above 1,300. As long as it stays above 1,286, it will retain a chance to get to 1,300 and 1,308 (50-day MA), where it will find a significant resistance.
A break below 1,286 will make the gold price test the 100-day MA at 1,279. If that level is breached, a bigger decline to 1,250 and lower may follow.
