XAU/USD: a short-term trade
Information is not investment advice
Last week XAU/USD recovered 38.2% of the November decline. However, the advance of gold was limited by the declining 50-period MA on the H4: the price made two attempts to overcome this area and all of them failed. The price formed a lower high and the price action strongly resembles a “Head and Shoulders” pattern. The decline below $1,460 will open the way down to the $1,450 area, according to the size of the pattern. An advance above $1,468 is needed for buyers to return to power.
AUD/USD formed an inverted "Head and Shoulders’ and is targeting 0.7815, 0.7840, and 0.7860.
USD/JPY rose to the resistance of the 50-week MA at 106.00. The pair is not at the resistance line since the end of December.
