"Their [gold bulls'] strength is expected to become stronger this week as Greece enters its make-or-break negotiation phase."
- Phillip Futures (based on CNBC)

Pair's Outlook
Following the strongest jump since mid-May on Thursday, the yellow metal turned flat just before the weekend. XAU/USD posted no major spikes or drops on Friday, while trading between two major technical zones at 1,204 and 1,197. A close beyond one of these marks is required to confirm either bullish or bearish expectations for the bullion. Even though the upward scenario seems less difficult to accomplish, daily technical indicators are giving signals to sell the precious metal at the moment. 

Traders' Sentiment
The total share of long open trades at the SWFX market remains solid at 63%, while bears are in the minority with 37% of all trades. Over the weekend, the gap between the former and the latter decreased marginally by just two percentage points.
