A Short Term Outlook: XAU/USD (Gold)

Today’s U.S. session will remain light as U.S. will release Revised UoM Consuemr Sentiment and Pending Home Sales data at the same time at 1400 GMT/1930 IST. There are 2 versions of this data released about 15 days apart – Preliminary and Revised. The Preliminary release is the earliest and thus tends to have more impact. While Pending Home Sales is a leading indicator of economic health because the sale of a home triggers a wide-reaching ripple effect.

Gold likely to have 8+ volatility at the time of fundamental news.
