Gold traded in a technical range today trading higher off the weakness of the U.S Dollar. I believe many traders were sidelined today awaiting tomorrow’s economic data. Especially the Jobless Claims…as investors look to the unemployment situation to judge the economic outlook. Gold traders are looking for a close above $1140.00
technically to change the trend. In the mean time I feel traders are uneasy about holding long positions and have been taking late session profits.
