Strong USD Continues To Limit Precious Metals Price Action

Gold Price
From Colin First:

Precious metals finally edged up from multi-week lows as global equity market is currently seeing bearish price action amid mixed signals from macro data and headlines. However, given the strength of the US dollar in the broad market, precious metals were unable to establish a solid recovery rally. Precious metal bulls are for now making the best of the current market situation but there is little chance for either gold or silver to breach past critical resistance levels. In the current market scenario, gold is still regarded as the most preferred #1 safe haven assets despite dollar gaining strength and political woes stemming from the USA has dampened US Greenback's long term outlook.
