Things to monitor:
1) CFTC Commitment of Traders net positions
2) A convincing close of the day above 1260 in gold .
3) Potential escalation of US-China trade tension and .
4) Potential decoupling between DXY and Gold in the coming weeks. i.e. Gold spike while DXY remains neutral.
Entry at 1253, medium term trade with targets at 1270 and 1300.
Note: Staggering your trades would help a lot for these types of longer term trades, I wouldn't fully commit to a bullish position just yet as DXY looks like it could rally to 95 anytime as fed hinted there could be 2 upcoming interest rate hikes.
Looks like this is gonna need lots of patience. I expect to see bullish CFTC speculative net positions in Friday's report.
