At the start of the week, XAU/USD fell to test Friday’s low at $1745, but managed to hold above. After hours of trading steadily, it jumped in the European session on general dollar weakness.
The yellow metal is trading at $1760, in positive territory and for the moment holding on to last week’s high. The very short-term tone is bullish for the metal. Below $1755 it could ease while just below $1750 it could change. Key support remains at $1745. If the rally continues, XAU/USD will face resistance at $1765 and then $1775.
