  • XAU/USD traded through the 61.8% retracement of the March /June decline at 1334 this week to trade at its highest level in almost four months
  • Our broader trend bias remains higher in the metal
  • A Gann confluence zone between 1348 and 1356 is the next area of attraction with a move above needed to signal that a much more important move higher is underway
  • A turn window is eyed in about a week or so
  • Weakness under 1305 would turn us negative on Gold again

Weekly XAU/USD Strategy: Like the long side while over 1305.
