What analysts are saying

Gold pulled back as the U.S. dollar retakes some of the ground it lost last week. The ICE U.S. Dollar Index was up 0.6% at 107.10 in recent trade.

According to Jeffrey Halley, a senior market analyst at OANDA, the technical setup underpinning the gold market doesn’t look very encouraging.

“Gold needs to overcome heavy resistance at the $1745.00 an ounce triple top before the gold bugs can really start to get excited. ​ It has support at $1680.00, and then the longer-term support around $1675.00 an ounce zone,” Halley wrote in a note sent to MarketWatch Tuesday morning.
