Gold and Brent crude turning higher after latest pullback

Gold and Brent crude looking likely to push upwards, with the latest period of weakness starting to reverse once again.

Gold turning upwards from Fibonacci support

Gold has been on the rise in early trade, with the latest pullback coming into a confluence of simple moving average (SMA) and 76.4% Fibonacci support.

The push higher seen this morning does raise the risk of a bullish reversal from here. A break back below $1746 brings a fresh bearish outlook for gold.

However, until that happens, the recent rise through $1787 points towards a potential period of upside that could result in an ultimate move towards the $1834 resistance level.

Brent crude uptrend likely to persist after yesterday’s pullback

Brent crude saw a rare pullback at the start of the week, with price falling back down into trendline support overnight.

A break below the $81.91 swing-low would bring an end to this trend, yet it makes sense to watch out for a bullish reversal until that breakdown occurs.

Gold price recovers as oil price gains slow

Gold continues to edge higher while the ongoing rally in oil prices appears to have paused for now.

Gold

After the losses of late last week the price has stabilised at $1760 and has pushed slightly higher, although there is still some ground to be recovered before a more bullish view emerges.

A reversal below $1760 would hand the advantage back to the sellers.

WTI

Momentum has eased off here, although the trendline from late September remains unchallenged as yet.

The price has yet to roll over, and indeed the lows of the previous two sessions remain intact. A firm drop below $81 would start to suggest a deeper retracement is at hand.

Gold and Brent crude gain ground, but questions remain

Gold continues to rise, although concerns remain over monetary tightening. Meanwhile, the Brent crude uptrend has paused below a multi-year trendline.

Gold on the rise despite rate hike concerns

Gold has been on the rise over the course of the week thus far, with price reversing upwards in the wake of the latest downside retracement.

There is a good chance we ultimately push up towards the $1834 region given how price has been seemingly drawn to that level over recent months.

However, the expectations of tightening monetary policy provides a cause for concern for bulls. With that in mind, a break below $1760 would bring a more bearish picture back into play.

Brent crude rallies into long-term trendline resistance

Brent crude has been consolidating for much of the week, with price largely stumbling around a long-term trendline resistance. The existence of this multi-year trendline does provide a major hurdle that needs to be overcome.

With that in mind, a break up through $85.55 resistance would be required to bring a bullish continuation signal. Conversely, a break back below the $83.13 swing-low would bring a signal of impending short-term weakness.

Gold

Markets fall three times faster than they rise, or thereabouts. This has been displayed nicely in gold, which has slowly clawed back last week’s losses. It is now looking at moving back above the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) of $1794 and then on above last week’s highs at $1800.

Sellers will hope that the 200-day SMA holds back gains again, and that the new week sees gold retreat from this level and eat into the gains of the past four sessions.

WTI

For the past two days oil has obstinately refused to roll over, with dip buyers coming in at $81.

We might well be close to the end of this remarkable bounce, but what follows is tough to tell. A short correction could be enough to reset the clock here and provide room for further gains.

We have not yet broken rising trendline support, so it is probably too early to suggest that a bearish move is at hand.

Gold and Brent crude ease back within recent uptrends

Gold and Brent crude have started to fade after recent gains, but the uptrends remain intact unless we see price break through key support levels.

Gold losing traction from Fibonacci resistance

Gold has been losing ground after a rally into the 76.4% Fibonacci resistance level on Friday. Price has returned to the initial intraday $1783 support level since, with price holding up as things stand.

A break below that level points towards a possible move below the crucial $1760 swing-low which would bring the wider bearish trend back into play.

Until then, there is still a good chance that this current pullback is a retracement set within an intraday uptrend.

Brent crude easing back but uptrend remains in play

Brent crude has been easing back after the recent rally into a multi-year descending trendline. With that trendline and the $86.65 resistance level (from 2017) up ahead, there was always likely to be questions being asked here.

A break back below $82.80 would bring about a bearish short-term view. However, until that happens the current pullback looks likely to represent a bullish retracement set within a clear uptrend.

Gold regaining lost ground after pullback into swing-low support

Gold has started to move higher after a period of retracement that took price back into the $1783 swing-low. A break below $1760 would be required to negate the uptrend in play over the course of October.

To the upside, watch out for resistance at $1807 (76.4% Fib) and $1834.

Brent crude tumbles after inventories build

Brent crude has taken a hit in the wake of a surprise 4.3 million inventories build. That took price back below the $82.80 swing-low, raising the possibility of a wider pullback.

However, we are seeing price turn upwards this morning, with a wider 61.8% Fibonacci retracement coming into play. Additionally, with a long-term descending trendline up above the recent highs, it makes sense to look for a break up above $86 for the bulls to gain greater confidence of an upward continuation move.

Gold faltering at the 76.4% Fibonacci level once again

Gold is on the back foot once again this morning, with price falling from the 76.4% Fibonacci resistance level.

The wider picture improves with a break up through $1834. However, until that happens there is a good chance we could see the bears come back into play.

A break back below the $1783 level could bring further downside, but we would need to see $1760 taken out to signal that wider breakdown coming into play.

Next week will be key given the potential for both the Federal Reserve and Bank of England to kick off their tightening phase.

Brent crude at risk despite yesterday’s rebound

Brent crude looks set for the first weekly decline since August, with a rise in US stockpiles bringing a sharp decline this week. The break below $82.80 highlights an end to the recent uptrend, outlining the potential for further downside in the near-term.

As such, while we have seen a rebound come into play, the bullish trend only returns with a rise through $86 resistance.

Gold continues its rebound from 76.4% Fibonacci support

Gold has been on the rise from 76.4% support, with price regaining ground since Friday’s low. A break up through $1810 resistance would bring about a fresh bullish signal to end the recent period of lower highs.

However, with the Federal Reserve and Bank of England (BoE) expected to initiate their tightening phase this week, there is likely to be volatility ahead for this market.

Brent crude rally into resistance highlights continued risk

Brent crude has been on the rise of late, with price regaining ground lost in late-October.

The drop below $82.80 support does highlight the risk of further downside, with a break up through $85.85 required to bring about a fresh bullish signal. Until then, there is a risk we see another bout of downside as price consolidates below the 76.4% Fibonacci resistance level.

While the wider bullish trend certainly highlights the risk of looking for short positions, there are also questions around bullish positions until $85.85 it taken out.

Gold at risk of further declines while oil prices drift down

Gold

Is gold's recent bounce finally done? If the sellers can drive the price below the 50-day simple moving average (SMA) of $1780 then perhaps we do have a more bearish turn at hand.

This could see $1760 and then $1742 tested. Buyers will hope a rally above trendline resistance from the late October high can punch through $1790 and see a revival of the October bounce.

WTI

Oil continues to drift lower overall, although the price refuses for now to give up the $81 level. This consolidation has its benefits, as it will help to ease some of the excessive bullishness of September and October.

The uptrend is hardly dented really, and even a drop towards the rising 50-day SMA (currently $75.71) would not necessarily suggest a full-blown reversal.

Gold turning upwards from near-term support

Gold has been gaining ground over the past 24-hours, with price reversing upwards from the $1760 swing-low established in October.

The fact that we are no longer seeing higher lows in play does raise the risk of another turn lower, with a break up through $1796 required to bring about a more confident bullish mood.

Until then, this current rise does run the risk of being another retracement before we head lower once again.

Brent crude on the rise, but recent bearish trend remains in play

Brent crude fell into a four-week low yesterday, with price building on the reversal lower from the 76.4% Fibonacci resistance level ($84.84).

However, we are now back on the rise, with price regaining lost ground. Whether we break up through $84.98 is key, with a rise up through that level required to bring about a fresh bullish signal.

Until then, there is a risk that we see the bears come back into play around the 61.8-76.4% Fibonacci zone ($83.39-84.00).

Once again gold has roared back into contention as a bullish play, moving back to $1820 and finding itself targeting $1830 once again.

A breakout above here is crucial, as this is the area that repeatedly halted gains over the summer.

WTI

As might have been expected, WTI's pullback of late October seems to have been sufficient to prompt buyers to step in and buy the dip.

Friday’s recovery seems set to continue today, and the recovery above $80 and then $81 suggests a further rebound towards $85 is now in play.

Gold heading back towards key resistance level

Gold is on the rise, with the precious metal having been on a sharp ascent since last week’s Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting.

Crucially we are heading back up towards the $1834 level which has been the dominant point of resistance over the past four months. The short-term recovery pathway points towards a bullish continuation, with a break below $1812 required to negate that trend.

However, it is worth noting the importance of that $1834 level as a hurdle which must be overcome for this bullish recovery to continue.

Brent crude looking increasingly likely to break from recent bearish phase

Brent crude has been on the back foot over the course of the past fortnight, with price respecting the 76.4% Fibonacci retracement levels on two occasions.

However, this latest leg lower could be the last, with price rising up through all Fibonacci levels and heading higher once again this morning. A break up through the $84.20 level would bring about a fresh bullish signal in line with the wider uptrend.

Until that break occurs, there is still a chance we turn lower once again.

Gold

Gains have stalled here but the price continues to target the vital $1830 area. Any longer-term move higher requires the price to clear this hurdle.

For now the overall bullish impression is still in place, with a drop back below $1812 needed to negate this.

Natural gas

After a huge rally in recent months, the price has entered a descending channel, as it carves out lower highs and lower lows.

Having neared the lower bound of the channel the potential for a rebound is rising, which could see the price head back towards 5900.

Gold breaks resistance, rallying into wider Fibonacci level

Gold has enjoyed a sharp surge since last week’s Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) and Bank of England (BoE) meetings, with price rising through the crucial $1834 resistance level.

That break brought about a surge into the wider 76.4% Fibonacci resistance level of $1861. A break up through that point signals a potential push up towards the next major resistance level of $1916.

As such, the reaction to this level will be key, with a break back below the $1822 required to bring a potential bearish picture into play.

Brent crude decline into 61.8% Fibonacci support brings buying opportunity

Brent crude has been on the back foot over the course of the past 24-hours, with price falling back into the 61.8% Fibonacci support level.

The latest break through the $84.20 swing-high brought an end to the recent trend of lower highs, bringing the expectation that this current pullback is a retracement before the bulls come back into play.

With that in mind, a bullish view is in play unless price falls back below the $79.99 low established a week ago.

Gold

Small dips in gold continue to find buyers, as the price rockets to a five-month high.

Additional upside is now to be found at $1875 and then $1905, although after such a sharp move higher some consolidation is to be expected.

WTI

Hopes of a rally have been dashed here over the past two weeks, with the drop back from recent highs continuing. Additional declines target $78 and then the 50-day simple moving average (SMA) at $77.36.

The bounce earlier in the week was a false dawn, but a move back above $83 could revive the expectation of a move back to recent highs.

Gold

After rallying sharply last week it is not surprising to see gold shed some ground in early trading.

A move back towards $1830 would challenge this area as support, while a deeper move lower brings $1813 into view.

However, consolidation and then a new move higher brings $1875 and even perhaps $1900 into play.

Gold_151121.pngSource: ProRealTime

WTI

A return to the 50-day simple moving average (SMA) of $77.56 seems likely, as the price struggles to make headway and continues a consolidation period. Below this $76.47 and then the 100-day SMA at $73.75 come into view.

Bulls will hope for a bounce that moves back above $80 and then allows a move towards $84 to be contemplated.

Gold has been on the front foot of late, with the rise through $1834 giving way to a swift $30 appreciation.

However, we have been consolidating over the past few trading days, with price struggling to break up through the $1868 level. That said, we are seeing price attempting to push up through that level this morning, bringing the potential for another strong leg higher here.

With that in mind, a bullish outlook holds unless price falls back below the $1856 support level.

Brent crude rebounding from key $80 support

Brent crude has started to push higher after a pullback into the $80 handle yesterday.

With price having rallied up into the $85 level last week, there was always a good chance we would see Brent turn higher at or above $80. As such, the rebound seen yesterday signals a potential bullish phase to bring us back into that $85 resistance level.

A move through either $80 or $85 would signal the directional bias from here.

Brent crude has seen its bullish October uptrend turn to a more volatile November, with price recently falling back down towards the key $80 handle in a bid to reverse lower once more.

However, with price holding up and rising through the initial $82.17 level, there is a chance we could see price reverse upwards once again here. Thus far we have seen the 61.8% Fibonacci support level breached, with the potential to turn higher from these levels.

As such, a tentative bullish short-term view is in place unless we see a bearish break below $80.

The price remains close to recent highs, having recovered on Wednesday’s session. Consolidation continues to be the most likely outcome here for now, allowing moving averages to catch up and sentiment to reset.

A rally above $1880 would put the upside case back in play, and target $1907. A deeper pullback targets $1830 and then $1815.

WTI

The price bounced off $76.47 yesterday and has pushed higher today. This could be the beginning of a new leg higher back towards $84, although stochastics have yet to give a bullish crossover.

Nonetheless, further gains above $80 should seal this view in the next week. A reversal back below $77 would be needed to hand the bears the upper hand once again.

Gold tumbles back into Fibonacci support zone

Gold has been hit hard this week, with price slumping back into the 61.8% Fibonacci support level.

While price initially held up at that $1804 support level, we are seeing it head lower once again this morning. A break below this level points towards a potential move back into the 76.4% Fibonacci support level of $1786.

The wider trend of higher lows does remain prevalent, bringing the potential for a bullish reversal within this deep Fib zone. A push back below $1759 swing-low would be required to end the wider trend in place over the course of the past two months.

Gold

Losses have stalled after the recent steep fall, with the price finding some respite around the $1789 level and the cluster of moving averages.

If buyers can mount a defence here a higher low is possible, opening the way to a recovery. However, further declines bring $1760 into view.

WTI

Unsurprisingly perhaps, the release of petroleum reserves was followed by a rise in the price, although gains have stalled at the 50-day simple moving average (SMA) of $78.69.

A close above $79 would clear this and the highs from last Thursday and reinforce the bullish view. Alternately a renewed decline brings $74.60 back into view.

Gold slumps back into trendline support

Gold has been on the back foot over the course of the past week, with price tumbling through all Fibonacci levels to reach trendline support.

 

A break below the $1760 swing-low would point towards a wider pullback coming into play. Thus the exit from this current consolidation phase will be important.

A rise through the $1797 level could start to build some bullish momentum. However, a break below $1778 would point towards a potential selloff into that key $1760 support level.

As such, the exit from this current consolidation phase will be key for near-term sentiment.

Instead we have seen energy markets strengthen, with price looking likely to continue its recovery phase if we manage to push up through the $82 handle.

As such, we are waiting to see if price rolls over into another significant pullback or rebound up through resistance to form a new higher high.

Gold rallies on safe haven demand but oil price falls as new Covid variant emerges

Gold has managed to recover $1800, but oil is falling along with global stock markets thanks to a new and potentially dangerous Covid variant.

Gold

Gold prices have begun to pick up as risk assets falter, with buyers coming in to push the price back above $1800, if only just.

If we can see additional gains above $1815 then the bullish view gathers further strength, and with a higher low this week at $1780 a longer-term bullish outlook can be contemplated.

WTI

Oil has fallen sharply along with indices, heading back to the $74 area and the 100-day simple moving average (SMA).

Further losses bring the 200-day SMA into view at $69.79, with $72.75 another area of possible support first. The recent swing high at $79 is an initial target if the price does begin to bounce.

Gold price rallies while oil price recovers

Gold has recovered from Friday’s volatility, and oil prices have managed to stage a recovery too.

Gold

Friday’s volatility saw the price surge and then slump, but the buyers managed to retain control, and the price has pushed higher back towards $1800.

This reinforcement of the higher low from last week revives the bullish view, which remains in place unless we see a drop back below $1780 and rising trendline support.

WTI

After Friday’s drubbing a bounce of some sort was to be expected, and with the price moving back above the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) of $69.82 it looks like the dip buyers are trying again.

Additional gains target short-term resistance around $77.80, and beyond this the 50-day SMA at $78.73 comes into view.

Gold and Brent crude fall back into key Fibonacci support

Gold and Brent crude hit hard over the course of the past week, but key Fibonacci support levels are coming into play to bring the potential for a bullish rebound.

Gold consolidating around Fibonacci support

Gold has been hit hard over the course of the past fortnight, with price consolidating above the 61.8% Fibonacci support level at $1781. A break through that zone of support would point towards a move back into the 76.4% level at $1759.

However, the wider trend of higher lows does point towards a potential rebound before long, with a rise up through the $1815 swing-high required to bring about a return of the bullish trend seen over the past two months.

Brent crude slumps back in towards the 76.4% support level

Brent crude has seen another sharp move lower this morning, in a move that replicated the one seen in global markets.

The $69.65 Fibonacci support level provides a key level of note for the days ahead, with the wider uptrend still in play unless price falls back below the $64.65 support level from late-August.

To the upside, a rise back up through the $75.92 swing-high would bring a more positive outlook once again.

Gold and natural gas both under pressure

Both gold and natural gas are under pressure in early trading.

Gold

Hopes of a rebound have been dashed with the changed Federal Reserve (Fed) outlook and the removal of the word ‘transitory’ from its communication. This lifted the dollar and hit gold hard, pushing it below trendline support.

Continued price action below $1800 reinforces the bearish view, while bulls will have to wait until the price recovers above $1800 for a more bullish view to emerge.

Natural gas

Prices continue to decline, and even with colder weather expected the price is unable to make much headway.

Even a rebound towards 5014 and the 100-period simple moving average (SMA) would still leave the downtrend intact, and indeed provide a better risk-reward setup for sellers.

Gold and Brent crude on the back foot, with recent selloff bringing potential for further downside

Gold and Brent crude hit hard over recent weeks, with the Omicron strain bringing expectations of further volatility to come.

Gold continues to weaken as price falls back towards Fibonacci and trendline support

Gold has been on the back foot for much of the past fortnight, with potential delays to the Federal Reserve (Fed) monetary tightening doing little to lift sentiment.

Price has now moved back into trendline support, with the 76.4% Fibonacci support level marginally below that point. The trend of higher lows does highlight the potential for another turn higher before long.

However, it makes sense to watch for a break up through the latest intraday swing-high of $1808 before looking at this market in a positive light once again. Until then, the recent bearish phase looks at risk of continuing apace.

Brent crude attempting to regain lost ground after collapse into $68 handle

Brent crude has been hit hard over the course of the past month, with price slipping $18 over that period. The wider uptrend does remain in play until we see a break through the $64.65 August low.

This market will be highly news-dependent, with volatility likely in the weeks ahead. A break up through the $72.82 swing-high would bring about a more positive outlook.

Gold tries to stabilise as oil prices move higher

Gold prices remain under pressure, but oil has bounced after the OPEC+ decision.

Gold

Gold has returned to the $1765 level but shows no sign of recovering yet. For that we would need to see a bounce back above $1780 and then on to $1800, accompanied by bullish stochastic crossovers.

These remain negative and ‘oversold’, indicating solid downside momentum. The sellers have the upper hand here for the time being.

WTI

After the OPEC+ decision the price bounced sharply from its lows, providing hope for the bulls that an upside case might soon prevail.

For this we would need additional gains above the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) at $69.91, but intraday dips may find buyers emerging, especially if the price can take out the $69.60 swing high.

    • S&P 500 has bounced again at a 50% level THT! If I learn nothing else I appreciate that you've opened my eyes to this and stops me from trading too frequently. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.
    • U.S. INDICES TECHNICAL HIGHLIGHTS: S&P 500 surges off support, new record high near Dow Jones finds significant support around the 200-day Nasdaq 100 top of channel test nearing again Dow Jones, S&P 500, Nasdaq 100 Forecast: Stocks Staring at New Highs Momentarily the S&P 500 broke the old high created in September, tagged the trend-line from October 2020, and then sprung higher. The volatility around the old high and trend-line were cues that something like this could happen. The October trend-line, which previously had the bare minimum to make up a trend-line given it had only two connecting points, has now been validated as a truly meaningful line of support. Should we see a revisit of that line in the near future it could hold a good risk/reward opportunity for fresh longs. Right now a test of the trend-line doesn’t look likely. Stocks are strong and near highs, in aggregate. The momentum has been fierce coming out of the low, which is normal, now stock momentum is likely to diminish as new highs come into focus. A new record will be recorded once the SPX breaks 4743. For now, looking for stocks to trade to new highs, it appears a Santa rally may be in the works. Until we see pervasive price action that takes out key line and levels, there appears to be no reason to be bearish at this time.     S&P 500 DAILY CHART S&P 500 Chart by TradingView The Dow Jones behaved around the 200-day moving average in very typical fashion. This is what was said last week, “We may see a solid push through the 200 initially, tag off of support below, then reversal higher.” That is exactly what happened. On Dec 1 we saw a slice through the 200-day to support beneath it followed by a recovery beginning the following day. The current leg higher is set to run with less steam, but look for the old high at 36565 to come into play. Since April the Dow may undergoing a broadening top type of sequence, but we’ll leave that on the backburners until it becomes more relevant. For now, staying the course on the upside. DOW JONES DAILY CHART Dow Jones Chart by TradingView The Nasdaq 100 was putting in a head-and-shoulders pattern around the top of a channel dating to September 2020, but that idea was quickly put to rest once the old high in September was met and held. A top-side test here will be interesting, because it will mean that the top of the channel is coming under pressure again. Can the NDX leave the gravity of the channel, or will it continue to keep the rally contained? It’s a big question, because once price escapes the top of these kind of patterns we can see an impressive acceleration unfold thereafter.
