XAU/USD aims higher
Information is not investment advice
Given the overall uncertainty about the global economic growth, concerns about the US-China trade war and the no-deal Brexit, there’s a fairly big chance that gold will continue strengthening. XAU/USD has already broken above the 50% Fibo of the 2011-2015 decline at 1,480 and the previous August high at 1,535. The natural bullish target is at 1,584 (61.8% Fibo). As a result, despite the technical bearish divergence on the D1, it’s possible to pursue more buying. The ADX shows that the uptrend is still rather strong. On the downside, the decline below 1,535 will open the way down to 1,500.
EUR/USD fell below 1.1850 after reaching 1.1920 on Monday. The pair consolidated after the initial bearish move.
USD/CAD remains within a downtrend. As a result, selling the pair as it turns down from resistance is the best strategy. Support lies at 1.3125.
