Gold rejected at 100-MA as USD strengthens

FXStreet (Mumbai) - Gold prices trimmed gains after facing rejection at USD 1138.21/Oz (100-DMA) as the USD advanced across the board in Europe.

Four day losing streak

The metal suffered losses for the four consecutive sessions and the USD strength could push the prices in the red for the fifth straight day today. The USD index recovered losses to trade moderately higher, which pushed gold and other metals lower.

Ahead in the day, the US factory orders data could offer cues to the metal. Meanwhile, upbeat action in the US stock markets could also weigh over the metal.
