Gold trend 08/01

Gold pulled back from its recent high last week, rejected by 2078 early during Monday’s US session. It cleared the 2050(1) support on Wed., triggering a round of selling and falling to an early weekly low of 2030. The price stayed within the range of 2035-2050, waiting for the release of US job data. When the data was announced, there was an increase in volatility; however, the closing price didn’t show any significant changes.

1-hour chart – Gold price is still fluctuating within the range of 2035-2050 after the US job data. In the past 48 trading hours, an S-T support has formed, and traders can consider utilizing the triangle pattern(2). Expect a breakout within the next 24 hours. The key event for this week will be the release of US core inflation data on Thursday.

Daily chart – A strong US job data last Friday has led to a strong US dollar punching the gold prices lower. On the other hand, it also reinforced expectations of an early interest rate cut, indicating a potential “soft landing” for the US economy, lifting the gold price up. The market as a result still lacks a clear direction. The 20-day MA(4) remains critical; and the previously mentioned upward support line (6) is still valid, and attention should be given to the larger triangle pattern on the daily chart (5) this week. Within the next 5-7 days, it is crucial for gold to break above the resistance zone of 2070-2080; if it fails to do so, the price will escape the upward support (6), and the overall structure on the daily chart will enter a sideways pattern.
