We have broken structure of accumulation and have formed a SOS (sign of strength) as well as strong LPS (last point of supply) at 1800-1795.
Based off the cause and effect of the accumulation, the calculation using the PnF chart as seen below gives us a target area of 1920 - 1955.
We have had high sells and low buys however have continued an upward trend and made new highs and higher lows with a strong demand curve/line formed from the low of the spring . This fact along with Gold moving in the same direction as the DXY shows its strength over USD and possibilities for a rally upwards.
Fundamentals also agree with the buying of gold due to Basel III policy - https://www.marketwatch.com/story/why-ba... Covid 19 Delta tensions - https://www.cbsnews.com/news/covid-vacci... and news just released with Biden and Putin tensions over ransomware Russian hackers.
This is not taking into consideration the potential tapering talks and increased possible in the near future.
Commitment of Traders shows the following of Non-Commercial Traders:
Long: 270,545 Short: 87,724
Change: 16,339 Change: (4,256)
This means institutions have opened more long positions and have closed short positions with a much higher percentage of longs than shorts.
Bank participation still shows 34.5% as short and 11.3% as long, however, this changed in the recent in favour of longs with long being increase by 1.1% and shorts by 0.5% - https://www.cftc.gov/MarketReports/BankP...

Entry: Between 1800 - 1815
Stop Loss: Below 1790
Take Profit 1: 1860
Take Profit 2: 1920
Take Profit 3: 1955
