Optimism or fear?
By: Ahura Chalki
Gold gave up all its gain of the day before in one hour, in yesterday’s first hours of N. American season, same as DXY.
Gold lost the ground for a few reasons. Sell of came after that it touched its highest level since 2012 and fears of pullback and correction, put some investors and traders in sell position to guarantee the profit, while stock markets just finished their best quarter in a decade. News about “Pfizer’s” vaccine also was another reason to help the positive sentiment that takes over the market. Positive sentiment raise with better than expected data from the EU and China, especially in PMI data, published yesterday.
For today and eyes will be on NFP and Jobless Claims data. Better than expected data can send the yellow metal deeper since optimism will be more realistic, while lower employment in the US, can confirm the longer crises, which will put the Safe-Havens in a bid, once more.
