    "For gold, I'm looking for a bearish case at $950 an ounce, driven by higher Fed fund rate to 1.25-1.5 percent and overall dollar strength."
    - OCBC Bank (based on CNBC)

    Pair's Outlook
    Bearish strength pushed the bullion substantially lower during the first trading session of this week. Recovering equity markets in Asia and risk-seeking sentiment resulted in XAU/USD's retreat below the psychological level of 1,100. Gold managed to limit the sell-off at the weekly pivot point at 1,092, the second support for it yesterday. Some buoyant action is possible in the next 24 hours, but the mid-term risks are still skewed to the downside. While aiming at the 1,084/81 support zone, the bears will be helped by the main resistance, namely 100-day SMA at 1,107.  

    Traders' Sentiment
    Distribution between open positions in the SWFX market has been flat for a third consecutive day on Tuesday, as the bulls and bears are still holding 55% and 45% of them, respectively.
