Gold Forecast And Current Trend: Gold continues its corrective growth, trading at 1906.0 amid the formation of new factors that act as global support for quotations. The day before, Reuters published statistics on Chinese gold imports, according to which the PRC imported 52.821 tons of precious metal in April only through Hong Kong, which is 219% more than in the previous month.
The second factor supporting the instrument is the weakness of USD. One of the main risks for USD is high budget spending, and President Joe Biden proposed to increase it several times, presenting a new draft budget for 2022 in the amount of USD 6 trillion (up from USD 1.52 trillion in 2021). It is quite natural that in such a situation a significant strengthening of USD is out of the question.

Gold Resistance levels Key: 1924.0, 1960.0.
Gold Support levels Key: 1886.0, 1826.0.
