Gold H4 Chart on March 23
Today March 23, 2017 – gold is expected to trade in consolidation from 1251 to 1241 to wait for the two important events – Job report at 12:30 GMT and Mrs Yellen speaking at 12:45 GMT. These two events will make strong gold movement and it will break-out of the 1241-1251 zone to continue its up trend or make a correction.
From the technical analysis, the 1248-1251 becomes a key zone to watch for gold direction until 12:00 GMT. Gold will drop to 1239-1241 if it is sold off because of profit taking by gold buyers to prepare for the two US important events at 12:30 GMT and 12:45 GMT
