The United States Dollar slipped towards the key short term support at 108.191 and reversed towards near the recent high due to the increase in CPI. Maintain bullish stance in the Dollar.
Spot Gold (XAU/USD)
Gold against the Dollar (XAUUSD) closed the week at the key support region. This is also supported by the weekly 200 simple moving average. Any signal of reversal in the lower time frame can pose a good opportunity to go long. However with the strong dollar, Gold may continue to fall in price. If the 200 simple moving average (SMA) does not hold, the gold will enter the bearish market.

If price managed to move back towards the 1700 level (will be above 50 EMA) and remain for a notable period, it will provide the potential signal to go long.
