Gold retreated from a new all-time high as profit-taking dropped price action back below the $2,000 level. Optimism over Covid-19 vaccines assisted the sell-off, but more government assistance out of the US and the additional debt load keeps demand elevated. Central banks have printed money to combat the pandemic, devaluating their currencies, driving risk-averse traders into the safety of gold. Since it is priced in US Dollars, weakness in the currency adds to upside momentum for this precious metal.
The forecast for the GOLD/USD turned bullish after the sell-off, with the global economic recovery anticipated to represent a slow overall ascend following a strong initial reversal against low comparisons. Price action is located between its Kijun-sen and its Tenkan-sen, with the Ichimoku Kinko Hyo Cloud ascending. Will bulls force gold back into its horizontal resistance area and pressure for new all-time highs? Subscribe to the PaxForex Daily Fundamental Analysis and earn over 5,000 pips per month.
