Take a Break
The yellow metal is strongly bullish and it seems determined to approach and reach new highs. It's trading at 1,948 at the time of writing far above yesterday's low of 1,907. As you already know from my analyses, XAU/USD is bullish as the Dollar Index dropped again in the short term.
After the US PPI, Core PPI, Retail Sales, and Core Retail Sales came in worse than expected on Wednesday, the price of gold was expected to resume its upwards movement. Today, the US Prelim UoM Consumer Sentiment is predicted at 66.9 points. This is seen as a high-impact event, while Industrial Production and Capacity Utilization Rate is expected to be better compared to the previous reporting period. In my opinion, poor US figures should weaken the greenback and could boost XAU/USD.
Technically, you knew from my analyses that the bias is bullish as long as it stays above the upper median line (uml) and above 1,914.
Now, it has ignored the 1,937 static resistance (upside target) and it seems unstoppable. It has reached the R3 (1,949) which represents an upside target as well.
The aggressive breakout through 1,937 was seen as a bullish signal, the 1,959 historical level represents a major upside target. Taking out this upside obstacle announces an upside continuation.
