On the hourly chart, the pair just moved above a topside trend line at $1468 (now just below that level as I type. Earlier the pair cracked the highs from Thursday and Friday at 41448 and the July 19 high at $1453.09.
Gold is the safe haven. If the dollar sells off as well, it should support the currency as well.
Looking at the 5-minute chart below, traders can watch the 100 bar MA at $1460.17 as close support.. Below that the 200 bar MA and trend line at $1454.15 is support now (and moving higher).
