On the daily chart of XAU/USD, bears are trying to form the “Shakeout-Fakeout” pattern as the pair could not break the upper boundary of 1302-1340 consolidation. To implement it the pair has to break the support at 1321. Vice versa, the hit of resistances at 1340 and 1345 will let bulls to hope on the continuation of the rally to 113% and 127.2% targets of “Shark” and “AB=CD” patterns.
On H1, the implementation of the “Butterfly” pattern will increase risks of the sharp decline. To resume the uptrend bulls should break the resistance at 1345.
Looking ahead, highlights from macroeconomic calendar include EZ Sentiment Index and Fed’s Evans speech who is a Fed non-voter. Rise in US-China tensions (WeChat specifically) sends US dollar higher.
