Gold analysis – 14 April 2020

By: Ahura Chalki

Gold kept raising ahead of earnings season, which started from this week, with Bank’s reports.

There are two main reasons for gold that could attract the funds to itself. As earning season starts, the volatility market is expecting in the stocks, and investors looking for safer havens. On the other hand banking rates are around zero, and it makes lower interest for bonds and other kinds of banking investments, so, money flows somewhere, which can give better profit, while it is safe as well, so, what can be better than gold?

In the economic calendar, we had Chinese trade balance earlier today, which was better than expected numbers, signaling the industry and manufacturing can return to normal environment faster than we thought, and if we see that in the US, how Mr. Trump admitted, then it can stop or ease the bulls of Gold.
