Trading signals for #GOLD → Support Retest. Bad fundamentals for $

GOLD Forecast
Gold is in an upward bullish channel. The price has been confirming the upward resistance line and the upward support line many times. The futures are approaching the support area of the channel. What to expect from the price?
Gold is consolidating between the key Fibonacci levels of 0.382 and 0.5. The price breaks one of the key support levels and tests 0.5 Fibo at 1935.843.
The price starts to form a rebound and most likely from the opening of the session will test the nearest resistance.
Fundamental factors in the new week may play the role of a bullish lever. In that case the price may not reach the support area of the rising channel and starts to strengthen.
After breaking through 1966 and consolidating above that level, the bulls might strengthen the price to 1981 and then to 2000.
But the fundamental factors are unpredictable, so there is a chance of the price bounce from 1966 and continue falling to the level of 0.618 Fibo 1904 (ascending support line).

The ADP National Employment Report is a measure of the monthly change in non-farm, private employment, based on the payroll data of approximately 400,000 U.S. business clients.

All in all - the fundamental factors, provided the expected data proves to be true, may influence the dollar rather negatively in the coming week and we could see the index decline. At that time this maneuver will be a positive sign for gold and the price of metal may strengthen.
