Gold Prices on a Bullish Run – U.S. China Tensions in...

On Tuesday, the safe-haven extends its previous session bullish moves and soars to 1,715 level after dipping to $1,698, mainly due to the broad-based U.S. dollar bearish bias ahead of the U.S. Federal Reserve policy meeting. The gold's bullish bias could also be attributed to the risk-on market sentiment backed by the growing optimism over a sharp V-shaped economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic, which recently dominated the US-China tussle. The yellow-metal prices are currently trading at 1,715 and consolidate in the range between the 1,700 - 1,725. However, the geopolitical tensions in Korea, Libya, and concerning China turned out to be the key factors that is keeping a lid on any additional losses in the gold, at least for now.

GBP/USD Sell Signal Update – Brace for a Manual Close! 

The GBP/USD is trading bullish around 1.3396 level, facing resistance at 1.3400 level. The resistance level is extended by the double top pattern at 1.3400 level, and a bullish crossover of 1.3400 level is likely to open further room for buying until 1.3446 level. On the 4 hour timeframe, the GBP/USD pair has formed a bullish channel that supports the pair at the 1.333 area. The RSI and MACD are suggesting a buying trend in sterling. However, I will prefer to open a buying trade only above the 1.3396 area, and below this, sell trade will be preferred. Therefore, I have shared a sell trade below 1.3395 area to capture quick green pips. Check out a trading plan below...

Furthermore, the concerns about the second wave of coronavirus infections also gave support to the US dollar and dragged the currency pair down.
