Gold Trend 08/07

Gold remained in a tight range yesterday. The market opened at 1739, and the price was bouned by 1739-46 throughout the day,

The relatively rapid drop the day before has slowed down since the price escaped the S-T downward trendline(1) yesterday. 1730-65(2) can be used as the operating range before the US employment figure. The S-T resistance at 1750 is still valid; if the price breaks the 1730 support, 1710-00 should be the next target to the downside.

The downtrend channel(2) is still dominating the daily chart. Althought the price failed to find new low yesterday, the reversal bottom-out sign has yet to appear. Can continue to take advantage of the 1730-1800 range before the price clears the 1730 support.

S-T Resistances:



Market price: 1742

Gold Trend 11/03 – Reversal signals yet to appear

The gold price was unstoppable last week. It broke clear the December high of 2088 and surpassed the historical high of 2147. On Friday, even with better-than-expected US non-farm payroll data, it continued to rise before the market closed, reaching a new all-time high of 2195. This week, the US will release core CPI and retail sales data on Tuesday and Thursday, if inflation slows down and the data disappoints, we can expect the gold price to continue its upward movement. 1-hr Chart – The gold price was rejected by 2190(1) again during the Asian session today. Since breaking through the resistance at 2147-2150 last week, an S-T upward channel(3) has formed in the past 48 hours. If the gold price breaks below the upward channel(3) after Tuesday’s data, the trading range can be set between 2155-85(2). Daily Chart – After breaking through the December high of 2088 (4) last week, gold officially began its uptrend. The upside target 2190, estimated based on the previous consolidation range of 1:1 (4.1), has been reached. As the gold price is approaching the upper resistance of the M-T upward channel(5), the gold price has pullback(6) before the market closed on Friday. Keep an eye out; it would be the first signal of another surge if the gold price closes above 2178 on the daily chart in the next 2 days. Otherwise, a retreatment toward 2147-50 will begin. P. To
