    Pair's Outlook
    American currency weakened across the board yesterday, while pushing safe-haven prices further to the upside. XAU/USD penetrated 200-day SMA for the first time since October, while nearing the first monthly resistance at 1,143. This supply is strengthened by weekly R2 and 2015 downtrend at 1,145/47. A climb above them will shift our attention to the May-Oct trend-line at 1,164. Alongside, ability to fix gains above 200-day SMA on Thursday will proclaim that bullish sentiment is strong. As for daily aggregate technical indicators, the signal is maintaining a mixed stance today.
