Gold is on track to test demand at 1,084

"The market is expecting, perhaps in March the Fed will have its second interest rate hike. It will lead to a very strong US dollar             , so gold             prices are likely to face pressure."
- Shandong Gold             Group (based on CNBC)

Pair's Outlook
A continuous move away from fixed income and safe-haven assets is putting more pressure on gold             prices. They slid down on Tuesday, by nearing one of the most important support clusters at 1,084/80 represented by the monthly R1 and 55/20-day SMAs. On Wednesday we expect these levels to be tested, but bearish success is not guaranteed for the moment. Given that daily technical indicators estimate a rebound, we cannot rule out such a scenario in the next 24 hours. However, in case XAU/USD             closes below 55-day SMA the focus will switch to the monthly pivot point at 1,065.
