XAU/USD was trading within a range last week as there are not many reasons for Gold to change the tendency. Last week’s main data was US CPI statistics. This week we advise to pay attention to US FOMC meting minutes. If there is nothing to take from those minutes, current week may be quiet as there is a holiday in the USA on Thursday. The broken through trendline on the Hurly chart says the trend is going to slow down.
There is no trend on the Weekly chart as the price is close to the MA55 balance line. There was no correction towards 1250-60,00 area. However, the downside tendency was limited. We think that Gold is going to slow down its downside tendency.
The downtrend is in progress on the Hourly chart as the MA-channel goes downwards and the price is below the MA55 balance line. We advise to open short trades from the MA55 balance line targeting 1210,00. Place stop losses below the curve.
Silver decreased last week but we see that the trend slows down as the trendline on the Hourly chart was broken through. However, we do not think that the tendency is going to reverse.
There is the uptrend on the Weekly chart as the price is above the MA55 balance line. There was no upside correction in the beginning of the week. However, the red trend line was broken through. We expect XAG/USD to trade with low volatility this week.
There is the downtrend on the Hourly chart as the MA-channel goes downwards and the price is below the MA55 balance line. We advise to take no decisions.
