Tuesday will be an interesting day for determine how strong (or weak ) the dollar are.
The US consumer confidence is forecasting 78.60 from 78.10.
A Positive result will be a good opportunity to short Gold.
According to Trading Central the downside is the major trend.
"Gold spot Intraday: the downside prevails.
Our preference: Short positions below 1328 with targets @ 1296 & 1279 in extension.
Alternative scenario: Above 1328 look for further upside with 1342 & 1350 as targets.
Comment: the immediate trend remains down and the momentum is strong."
Technically, the chart shows a bullish pattern which is good if you are wishing to long gold before to short it again in an appropriate time.
Last week, the yellow metal dropped due a very strong USD. Perhaps, we shall consider more drops, but it is interesting to observe such pullbacks too.
