Troy ounce of gold is trading on the morning of Wednesday, August 21, at $1513,30. The technical picture allows for continued growth until at least $1550, medium — to $1600. The long-term target for gold is at $1680-1700 per Troy ounce.
In a temporary flat gold can hold US intention to continue negotiations on a trade agreement with China, but today it is and tomorrow may not be.
