OANDA:XAUUSD   Gold Spot / U.S. Dollar
Hi Guys,

uncertainties over a US China Trade Deal by year end formed a double bottom in divergence with RSI that favoured the pullback from D into descending 200SMA and on upper band of the 100BB. To note that this encounter between BB and SMA occurred when sentiment was overbought.

A similar formation occurred few weeks ago when B was forming. Here the idea posted at the time:
The pullback from B retraced 0,382 Fibo of AB before receiving the push down by the 100SMA to from D. Is the 200SMA pushing the same? Or will price manage to break through towards E(D) into descending trendline?

If the latter was going to happen, and that is a CUP & Handle , a good opportunity may be when handle breakout. But, it may not be that easy to position with adequate stops as a 200SMA keeping price down is very strong.

TO NOTE. NFP will be released today.
