This is particularly true if market participants find the Fed’s stance to be more dovish than the already dovish Fed statement from January 30. </p><p>On January 30, the Fed delivered not only a ‘wait-and-see’ approach in regards to further rate hikes, but also declared that it would be prepared to adjust the balance sheet runoff ‘in light economic and financial developments’.</p><p>Even though it seems difficult at first glance to expect increasingly dovish rhetoric, but any hint that could be interpreted as a “the next step in regards to rates is more likely to be a cut than a hike” has the potential to accelerate movement in Gold. </p><p>The target on the upside is around the 2017/2018 yearly highs of 1,360 USD/ounce, while the bulls have the advantage on their side on a daily time frame above 1,300 USD/ounce. Any pullback against 1,323/325 can be considered attractive for long-engagements from a risk-reward perspective. </p><p><a href=”https://admiralmarkets.com/analytics/traders-blog/gold-bulls-on-fire”><img style=”width:auto;” class=”img-responsive” src=”https://fxmedia.s3.amazonaws.com/articles/remote/0bfbb0f9ff58202725541aac95df4a58.png” style=”” rel=”” alt=”Gold index daily chart and projection”></a></p><p><em>Source: Admiral Markets </em><a href=”https://admiralmarkets.com/trading-platforms/metatrader-5″><em>MT5</em></a><em> with </em><a href=”https://admiralmarkets.com/trading-platforms/metatrader-se”><em>MT5-SE Add-on</em></a><em> Gold daily chart (between November 17, 2017, to February 19, 2019).
