Gold Price Forecast: Bearish Gold Outlook Below Key Support | MENAFN.COM


As the mood music improves during peace talks between Russia and Ukraine, geopolitical risk premium in gold continues to unwind. Keep in mind, prior to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the outlook was looking rather bleak for the precious metal as the Fed were preparing to embark on the most aggressive tightening cycle in decades. This remains the case given and perhaps even more so as Powell and Co. look to hike rates in 50bps clips. Therefore, it is important for gold traders to once again focus on real yields for direction (Figure 1), which as it stands, points to lower gold prices.

As such, much like my view on risk appetite (S&P 500 fading rallies), in the absence of further geopolitical escalations, the focus will shift towards the Fed tightening financial conditions.

From a technical perspective, gold is neutral and while I am leaning towards the downside in the precious metal. Bearish conviction will grow on a break below 1880, which will also likely confirm a double top from 2070.

Sky high inflation prints in the Euro Area, which kicked off with four decade high Spanish data at 9.8% vs Exp. 8%. German CPI prints also notably firmer. Alongside this, with the plethora of ECB speakers talking up the prospect ofending asset purchases in Q3 followed by rates hikes.

Main comment: ECB's Kazimir - Wants ECB to end negative rates in the next 12 months. (money markets see this happening by year end)

In turn, this has prompted a shift in ECB rate expectations, which for the DAX has seen the index begin to stall at resistance (previously support) situated at 14800-15000.

    • Bitcoin and other major crypto experienced a dip in value on Thursday, erasing gains made earlier in the week. The decline came after the Federal Reserve signaled that interest rates would remain high for an extended period, with Bitcoin retreating 2.3% to $26.5K. Despite the bearish pressure,  the founder and CEO of Bitcoin joint mining company Xive,  Didar stated that the stagnant rate increase is positive for Bitcoin. He suggested that this could reduce the attractiveness of mainstream financial assets to institutional investors in the long term, potentially driving a new rally in Bitcoin's price. Major altcoins and exchange tokens also struggled on Thursday, with ETH changing hands at $1,585, down about 2.6% from Wednesday. Other altcoins such as BNB and BGB also experienced losses. Despite these challenges, some analysts believe that Bitcoin is likely to remain within its recent range between $25,000 and $30,000. Riyad from digital asset data platform Kaiko, noted that the market needs a catalyst to mount any serious rally.  What are your thoughts? 
    • Traditional banking systems served as the gatekeepers of financial services for long, dictating how people access loans, save, and invest in opportunities. Typically controlled by a centralized system with a single authority such as a bank or government in total charge, this centralization is limited by high fees, restricted accessibility and slow transaction speed. Dentralized finance, DeFi, got introduced as a blockchain-based financial system that removes intermediaries or central authorities, and utilizes smart contracts instead. By eliminating intermediaries, DeFi delivers core benefits like improved accessibility into the financial system for everyone having internet connection regardless of their location. DeFi is also valued for its transparency. While traditional banking system often deny customers audits on how their assets are being managed, DeFi, through the help of blockchain allows anyone access to tracking and auditing transactions, thereby raising trust. Furthermore, DeFi also offers various financial services and products like DEX, lending and borrowing, stablecoins etc, all known to proffer varied innovative solutions, while operating 24/7 in contrast to traditional finance. DeFi isn’t flawless as issues like insecurity, lack of consumer protection etc are still prevalent; however, the growth of DeFi has been impressive; since its introduction, the total value locked in DeFi protocols has grown significantly indicating that the demand for DeFi services is fast growing. DeFi seems to be redefining financial industry by offering an alternative to traditional banking systems. With the increasing adoption, can we expect to see an overhaul in the way we access financial services?        
    • Leverage is good but please use it according to your risk management system coz the higher the leverage the higher the risk, I trade my perpetual futures on Bitget tho, the exchange offers high leverage but I only use according to my risk management system.
