Gold Price May Attempt to Break Out Amid Failure to Test Monthly Low

Gold price is exchanged near his area to look as we discussed in the previous analysis. Press the external sliding line (SL) of the descending red pitchfork. The price of gold trades in a tight range amid rising bets for a Federal Reserve rate cut, and failure to test the low-monthly ($ 1459) can lead the top targets back on the radar like a flag-bull training takes shape.

The table is trade-weighted futures contract on dollar indexes. The 6-year chart reveals that within what looks like nothing more than a giant base model on the 20-year chart there has been a significant bull market and therefore a bear market over the past five years, with the bull market resulting in 20 times low gains, which were all lost in the bear market that followed. The 5-year chart for the dollar index shows that a giant enlargement formation has been building since the beginning of 2015, which is bearish, but before it breaks which often leads to a period of wild and irregular trading. The 6 month chart shows us recent action in more detail, but otherwise is of little use technically, and is actually deceptive, because it shows the lower gold trend, but we know that long-term charts show that the trend is more big is tall. So it’s relevant here to see what the rankings say of Deutsche Bank stock. Gold’s latest COT chart showed some deterioration from last week, which could lead to a smaller dip, but overall we saw an improvement trend in readings from the end of January, with short trades and large long positions. Spec moderation rather high.

Needless to say, when paper money no longer has any value, gold and silver will then be the focus of the scene. The dollar rose across the board, rising to a six-month high against the yen, after Powell gave an optimistic outlook for the US economy. A stronger dollar can make commodities at prices in the currency, like gold, more expensive for investors with other monetary units, thus reducing the demand for gold. The US dollar was a bit soft as of late, and that very often can help gold as well.

Gold markets were initially flat during the day on Thursday, but began to roll in the day. They rose slightly at the start of the session on Wednesday as the markets will be paying attention to the Federal Reserve. Globally, the demand for precious metal has fallen to its lowest level since the end of 2009, according to the World Gold Council. In the third quarter of 2017, the demand for the safe haven was 915 tons, 9% less than the previous year. The demand for gold bars and coins has increased by 17% worldwide, with China making the largest contribution. Total investment demand for gold fell 28% in the third quarter, to 241 metric tons, compared to a year earlier.

Part of the drop of gold was due to a contaminated association to raw materials, in general, a report that supposedly means less to investors if and when they are scared back to the shelter of the yellow metal if the stocks withdrawn. It is not a magic elixir, but a fiercely reliable store of value. It has dropped a little in the last few hours and canceled previous earnings. It is still in trade in a range and forming a symmetrical triangle on an hourly chart. In just over five weeks, it increased more than the annual average from the Nixon shock in August 1971 (c. 7.1%). Keep in mind, the short-term prospects for the gold remains mired by a head and shoulders formation, with the precious metal still at risk for a bigger correction as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) continues to monitor bearish formation from June.

Gold is no longer so shiny. It is always interesting to observe gold in other currencies. Gold showed some exhaustion signs on Thursday, when it precipitated aggressively. It is trading at $ 1345 per ounce, but far below 1350 high yesterday. In the very short term, therefore, it is not immune to the magnetic force of shifts in the complex of raw materials, said Trey Reik, senior portfolio manager with Sprott Asset Management. The reason for mentioning the average annual gold gain is to put remarkable performances of gold in the context.
