Risk-on sentiment could push gold to monthly lows of $1,445 - Bannockburn Global Forex
Headlines surrounding Hong-Kong election and China’s concession on intellectual property rights are boosting risk-on sentiment, according to Bannockburn Global Forex. “The combination of the victory of the pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong and an apparent concession by China on intellectual property rights is helping bolster risk appetites to start the week,” writes Bannockburn Global Forex chief market strategist Marc Chandler. The positive news are keeping the pressure on gold, which could be testing monthly lows soon. “Gold is heavy and looks poised to test the month's low near $1445,” Chandler says.
