Nick Cawley, a senior strategist at dailyFX, said the positive tone taken by the US Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell gave gold the impetus to post a new all-time high before sellers appeared and gold the precious metal lower last week.

“After completing a bullish pennant pattern last week, the daily gold chart is now looking to build another bullish set-up. The current sideways price action may turn into a bullish flag pattern, and this would likely see gold pushback above $2,200 an ounce and test the all-time high at just under $2,225 an ounce. Reasonable first-line support seen a fraction under $2,150 per ounce,” said Cawley.
