Fundamental: Gold retraces after hitting the highest level in a month as US and China decided to further their discussions on trade, soothing investor concerns around a full-blown trade war. U.S. President Donald Trump called the trade war with China “a little squabble” and insisted talks between the world’s two largest economies had not collapsed, as investors remained cautious for another tit-for-tat tariffs war. However, U.S. President Trump sounded optimistic on the possibility of making a deal with China in a Twitter thread and allowed risk-appetite to return to markets. Rise in investor interest in bullion was also evident after holdings of SPDR Gold Trust, rose 0.44% on Monday, its biggest one-day rise in nearly two months. Today, from the US, market participants will be keeping an eye on retail sales number to gauge a view for the greenback; expectation is that number could disappoint and could keep the dollar under pressure.
Suggestion: SELL GOLD TILL 1295 FOR 1287/85 ELSE BUY ABOVE 1303 FOR 1308/1313
