Gold Price Prediction – Gold Forms Doji Day as Brexit Concerns Offset a Rising Dollar

David Becker

Gold prices moved sideways on Tuesday forming a doji day, which signals indecision. Riskier assets gained traction, allowing US yields to move higher. UK Lawmakers reject a timetable for Brexit deal legislation, and this means that the UK government has lost control of the process. There might even be a general election by the end of the year. While lawmakers Tuesday endorsed Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal, the timeline was too quick. Johnson even threatened to pull the deal if lawmakers refused to fast-track the legislation. The dollar gained traction despite falling US yields.
