GOLD PRICE TALKING POINTS

The price of gold struggles to extend the series of higher highs and lows from earlier this week as Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell prepares US lawmakers for a material shift in monetary policy, and recent developments in the Relative Strength Index (RSI) indicate a larger pullback for bullion as the oscillator falls back from overbought territory to indicate a textbook sell signal.

GOLD PRICE FORECAST: RSI SELL SIGNAL EMERGES AHEAD OF US NFP REPORT

The price of gold appears to be reversing ahead of the February high ($1974) as Chairman Powell insists that “it will be appropriate to raise the target range for the federal funds rate at our meeting later this month,” and the upcoming shift in Fed policy may drag on bullion as market participants brace for higher US interest rates.

The comments suggest the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) will layout a more detailed exit strategy as Chairman Powell pledges to “proceed in a predictable manner” when normalizing monetary policy, and it remains to be seen if the Fed officials will project a steeper path for the Federal Funds rate as the central bank is slated to release the updated Summary of Economic Projections (SEP) at the next interest rate decision on March 16.

Until then, developments coming out of the US along with swings in investor confidence may influence the price of gold as the Non-Farm Payrolls (NFP) report is anticipated to show a further improvement in the labor market, with the economy expected to add 400K jobs in February.

Another uptick in US employment may generate a bearish reaction in the price of gold as it puts pressure on the FOMC to adjust its exit strategy, and the precious metal may face a larger correction over the coming days as it struggles to extend the series of higher highs and lows from earlier this week.

With that said, the near-term rally in the price of gold points to a potential shift in the broader trend as it clears the 2021 high ($1959), but recent developments in the Relative Strength Index (RSI) indicate a larger pullback for bullion as the oscillator falls back from overbought territory to indicate a textbook sell signal.

  • The broader outlook for the price of gold has become bullish as it cleared the opening range for 2022 in February, with bullion taking out the 2021 high ($1959) as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) climbed above 70 for the first time this year.
  • However, the price of gold appears to be reversing ahead of the February high ($1974) as it struggles to extend the series of higher highs and lows from earlier this week, with the RSI highlighting a similar dynamic as the oscillator falls below 70 to indicate a textbook sell signal.
  • Lack of momentum to hold above the Fibonacci overlap around $1916 (38.2% expansion) to $1929 (23.6% retracement) may push the price of gold back towards the $1876 (50% retracement) region, with a break/close below the $1859 (23.6% retracement) area opening up the $1837 (38.2% retracement) to $1847 (100% expansion) zone.

    • I overheard a discussion between two friends and one was telling the other that Bitcoin is a scam and that a lot of people preached about the halving and how people could cashout from it. The other friend was trying to convince him to continue holding his asset but he refused and replied that nothing would stop him from selling the coins he's holding.  When I heard that man mentioned cashing out from the halving, I understood that he might know about Bitcoin but he's not properly enlightened concerning it. A lot of expectations were cut short after the halving event cause most people expected Bitcoin to set a new height of $80k but then it didn't even get close to the previous all time high and have reduced below $60k currently.  I think people shouldn't get discourage by that, though I didn't experience other halvings cause I had zero knowledge about Bitcoin then but i think something similar have occurred before in one of the previous halving where Bitcoin price didn't go up as expected but later traced back and went up after some period, a lot of people might begin to panic and sell their coins but I still see this an opportunity to buy more Bitcoin and for those who are not opportuned to do so, holding is the best option, please correct me if you think am wrong
