Gold Extends Gains To Three Straight Days Amid Trump Turmoil

The safehaven yellow metal gained $19.10 (+1.60%) in Tuesday afternoon trading, to $1,215.10 per ounce. With growing uncertainties surrounding the new administration, and accompanying stock market weakness, gold is proving to be a very attractive asset right now.

For the technical analysis of gold, let's kick it over to the experts over at Kitco :

Technically, April gold futures prices closed nearer the session high today. The gold bears still have the overall near-term technical advantage, but the bulls have gained some upside momentum early this week. Gold bulls' next upside near-term price breakout objective is to produce a close above solid technical resistance at the January high of $1,223.00. Bears' next near-term downside price breakout objective is pushing prices below solid technical support at last week's low of $1,182.60. First resistance is seen at today's high of $1,217.40 and then at $1,223.00. First support is seen at $1,200.00 and then at today's low of $1,195.60. Wyckoff's Market Rating: 4.0
