Gold uptrend opportunity based On 1.00 Lot Calculation:

  • Gold rose above the mark of 1850 to test its highest rate since 2011 (1876.30). The safe- haven Gold remained on the upside as demand for safe- haven assets continued to rise supported by rising financial market uncertainties due to growing number of coronavirus cases worldwide.
