XAU USD in the news

Friday’s US President Donald Trump’s speech on China’s forceful national security legislation on Hong Kong was softer-than-expected and did not target the trade relationship between the two countries.

Therefore, the risk appetite returned and killed the haven demand for the greenback, which in turn benefitted gold, according to FX Street.

Gold markets have rallied significantly during the trading session on Friday, breaking above the top of the shooting star from the Thursday session.

That being said, we still see a significant amount of resistance in the region of $1750, extending all the way to the $1760 level.


Spot gold climbed 0.7% to $1,737.48 per ounce. Prices earlier rose 1% to hit an over one-week high of $1,744.19.

Gold gained on Monday supported by increasing friction between Washington and Beijing and protests in the United States over racism, however, hopes of a potential vaccine to fight COVID-19 capped bullion’s ascend.
