Technical Analysis


Deutsche Bank has changed its strategy concerning gold. In addition, the bank’s analysts expect the asset price to fall immediately by 12% over the coming months.

Technical analysis of an asset allows for the short-term growth of the asset. However, if the asset breaks the downside support level, Deutsche Bank’s forecast may come true.


The chart of the currency pair has formed a head and shoulders pattern and has already broken through the support level. A decrease in the asset’s price is possible.


The asset has consolidated above the base of the “Triple Bottom” pattern, which indicates the start of a bullish trend.
