- Prior +17.8%; revised to +20.3%
- Retail sales +1.3% vs -0.2% y/y expected
- Prior -5.1%; revised to -3.1%
Retail sales activity continues to pick up after bottoming out in April, with textiles, clothing and footwear contributing to the big beat once again. This could still be largely due to pent-up demand but regardless, is a lagging indicator since this pertains to Q2.
As I discussed in the previous review, the Gold managed to breakout the ascending triangle that I warned yesterday and almost tested my yesterday's target at $2,050
Analyzing the current trading chart, I found that the buyers are in control but that they might be in overbought condition. Still, I see potential test of $2,050 but after the pullback first.
1-Day relative strength performance Finviz
Based on the graph above I found that on the top of the list we got Silver and Crude Oil today and on the bottom Orange Juice and VIX
In my opinion, The money flow is definitely today on the Metals and there is more room for the upside.
Support level: $2,030
