However, USD is also growing and this fact have some negative impact on XAU/USD. Interest Rates hike odds increase. Gold is still within a triangle and may remain inside this pattern for the whole week.
There is the uptrend on the Weekly chart as the price is above the MA55 balance line. There was an upside correction and we expect it to continue this week.
The downtrend is in progress on the Hourly chart as the MA-channel goes downwards and the price is below the MA55 balance line. The MA-channel reversed but we think that it does not mean the beginning of the downside tendency. We advise to open short trades from 1270,00 area.
Silver is trading within a triangle and we expect the asset to go down. You may try to open short trades today. XAG/USD is under pressure as FOMC members’ comments give additional support to USD. However, growing demand from India and China give support to Silver.
