“The markets maintain a favorable view of gold. Still, travel direction is unlikely to be a straightforward process dotted with periods yields backing up, and bouts haven strength should create headwinds along the way.

“After gold initially surged on haven demand gold on Friday, bullion gave way to a stable dollar and as risk stabilized.

Ostensibly, the president testing positive for COVID-19 appears gold bullish. It adds to uncertainty, as we head into an election. Still, with the dollar holding firm, it lessens the appeal for gold.”
