Gold Technical Analysis

Gold appeared to have lost most of its safe-haven quantities. We have studied the yellow metal and concluded that it seems to benefit from moderate gains during risk appetite mode. As our expectations are for a weak US Dollar, Gold (XAU/USD) is unlikely to be an exception. We are basing our trading strategy in Gold on the market fundamentals rather than a firm technical entry, which makes this a fundamental strategy.

The positive divergence may indicate a technical correction is due. a Firm break above 1,191 may affirm the bullish outlook for the precious metal. Although the nearest support level can be found at 1,184, we are choosing to layer the protective stop below 1,178. Under normal circumstances we would have opted for a smaller take profit but as we aware of the impact Greece may have on the market we are setting 100% objective of the reversal as our take profit. We would like to clarify that in most scenarios a weak US Dollar is initially  expected from Greece.
