Gold Trade Update
2021-08-24 • Updated
Gold began the week higher breaking multiple resistance areas, including 1780 followed by 1800, and closed yesterday's trading above 1800 for the first time since the flash crash that happened a few weeks ago.

In the meantime, it would be wise to increase the Stop Loss once again to 1770 USD/Oz to protect our profits.
