COMEX gold trades marginally lower near $1805/oz after a 1.3% gain on Monday. Gold steadied as the US dollar index paused after yesterday’s decline.
Supporting price is reduced expectations of Fed’s monetary tightening post comments from Dallas Fed President Robert Kaplan, mixed economic data from major economies, tensions relating to Afghanistan, and persisting virus concerns.
Weighing on price is continuing ETF outflows and recovery in equity markets. Gold's break above $1800/oz shows positive momentum however gains may be limited if bulls fall in keeping it above $1800/oz.
