GOLD an uptrend opportunity based On 1.00 Lot* Calculation:

Gold managed to break above $1,440 area after a certain period of consolidation. The rate cut helped the commodity to break above this strong resistance level.

Today gold prices rose amid the escalating US-China trade dispute, while political concerns in Hong Kong also spurred safe-haven demand. Gold is certainly benefiting from the global concerns about the outlook for growth, and central banks are likely to maintain their accommodative stance, so the demand for gold as an alternative investment has increased dramatically. Moreover, it is expected to surge higher.

Last week, US President Donald Trump unexpectedly announced additional tariffs on $300 billion worth of Chinese imports. According to local reports, China vowed to fight back but did not give any further details. This situation might lead to a mixed market sentiment and the price correction.
