COMEX gold trades higher near $1786/oz and has hit a session high of $1791.8/oz, the highest level since Oct.2012. Gold trades higher supported by weaker US dollar, increasing concerns about rising virus cases, uncertainty about US-China trade deal, hopes of additional stimulus measures and continuing ETF inflows.

Gold may continue to trade with a positive bias on increasing uncertainty relating to rising virus cases however the momentum could subside if the price doesn’t close above $1789-1790 a multiple resistance zone.
