FxWirePro: Gold consolidates in narrow range,break above $1300 for further bullishness

The major three factors that drive gold prices

 US dollar Index: weak. DXY has recovered of more than 70 pips after a major sell-off. But overall trend is still weak as long as resistance 95.95 holds. Any break below 94.80-94.90 confirms further weakness and decline till 93.84 likely. On the higher side any break above 97.75 confirms bullish continuation.(slightly positive for gold).

USD/JPY: weak. USD/JPY has lost nearly 100 pips after a minor jump till 109.08. The pair should break below 107.50 for further weakness.It is currently trading around 108.14. Slightly positive for gold

 US 2 year yield: It is trading around 2.55%. The spread between US 10 year and 2 year has declined to 15bpbs from 30 basis point. The spread between 5 year and 2- year yield has inverted (US 5 year yield trading below US2 year yield).

Gold technical

Major support $1183

 On the higher side, yellow metal is facing strong psychological resistance around $1300 and break above will take the gold to next level till $1320.

The near term support is around $1276(20- day MA) and any violation below will drag the commodity down till $1266/$1252/$1242 /$1234.
