On the agenda again, you may receive the meeting, trump and si. What results will bring the talks this week will depend on investor sentiment and future expectations for the dawn of 1 March.
Despite the widespread optimism, gold has resumed its growth after the local drawdown on Monday. Quotes again held above the level of $1300 and aspire to the level of $1315, which acts as resistance last week. The absence of pronounced signs of bearish correction metal, despite the strong dollar, says that among investors there are still doubts about the resolution of trade dispute between the two largest economies in the world.
