Information is not investment advice
XAU/USD, also known as spot gold, rose to the 1,440 area - the same zone that stopped its advance last week. On D1, there’s a “shooting star” candlestick that points at the bearish correction. A decline below the 50-period MA at 1,409.50 will open the way down to the key support at 1,400. The return above 1,420 is needed to let the price retest the recent highs.
EUR/USD fell below 1.1850 after reaching 1.1920 on Monday. The pair consolidated after the initial bearish move.
