Gold & Silver Price Outlook: Watch Support Just Below


Recommended Posts

GOLD & SILVER TECHNICAL OUTLOOK:

  • Gold has the 200-day moving average just beneath
  • Silver is trading near support from 2020-2021
 

Gold has been trading lower with rates and dollar strength raging on, but the decline could come to an end soon, at least for a bounce. There is good support not far below via a pair of technical thresholds that are in confluence.

The 200-day moving average is at 1836 and starting to level off. Just beneath that point is a trend-line from the August 2021 low, when a mini-flash crash even occurred. The trend-line lies around roughly 1830.

A run through the 200-day that sees price reverse from trend support to close on a daily basis back above the 200 could make for an interesting counter-trend opportunity for would-be longs. For shorts, it could be a signal to cut back on exposure or employ a trailing stop strategy.

Silver continues to lead the way lower, but like gold it also has important support just below. The low created in late 2020 at 21.81 is at risk of getting breached, but not far below at 21.41 lies a double bottom effort from last year.

A tag and reverse from support or a run through and reversal (even better) could lead to a rally in the days ahead. The rally would initially be viewed as countertrend in nature, but given the nature of silver it could be a powerful upside move in fairly short order.

A breakdown below support would turn that current floor into a ceiling to watch on a bounce. For now, though, looking at it through the lens of support until proven otherwise.

    • The new month kicked off with several stock market indices hitting record highs on Thursday. Japan's Nikkei Average, the S&P 500, and the Nasdaq all closed at fresh record peaks. The gains were buoyed by tech stocks like NVIDIA and Advanced Micro Devices. Stock markets are in an upbeat mood after US inflation figures came in line with expectations on Thursday. This helped shape forecasts for the timing of future Fed interest rate cuts. It extended the ongoing global equity rally and also pushed Treasury yields lower. The DAX also reached a new all-time high on Thursday. Europe opens today waiting for inflation data that should indicate inflation is moving back toward the 2% target. This comes after data showed inflation dropping in countries like Germany, France and Spain thanks to lower energy and food prices. The ECB has maintained record-high interest rates since September. Also on the calendar today is the US ISM manufacturing PMI.   
    • Cocoa Elliott Wave Analysis - 1 March 24 Function - Trend Mode - Impulsive Structure - Impulse Wave Position - Blue wave ‘iv’ unfolds Direction - Blue wave ‘iv’ in progress Cocoa has been a standout performer in the commodity market over the past two years, exhibiting a robust upward trend since September 2022. During this period, Cocoa prices have surged by an impressive 170%, following a discernible impulse wave pattern. Examining the daily chart, it is evident that the current rally, which commenced around the 2200 mark, is approaching its final stages. The completion of black wave 5 marked the conclusion of blue sub-wave iii at 6500. The recent downward movement indicates the emergence of blue sub-wave iv. Based on projections, blue sub-wave iv of 5 is anticipated to progress towards the significant level of 8000. A closer inspection of the sub-waves within blue wave iv reveals a potential three-wave decline, as depicted on the H4 chart. This decline from 6500 is forecasted to retrace towards the Fibonacci levels of 5489-5174. Additionally, the critical trading level of 5000 serves as another pivotal area to monitor for potential support should the ongoing dip breach the aforementioned Fibonacci zone. However, it's essential to note that the development of the wave 5 impulse pattern would be invalidated if prices were to fall below 4354. In summary, adopting a strategy of buying into the dip appears to be the most prudent approach for traders interested in Cocoa. The focus will be on purchasing opportunities towards the end of blue wave iv of 5, particularly if there's a bullish reaction observed at the identified price support levels. This analysis underscores the potential opportunities within Cocoa's current price movement and provides a framework for traders to navigate the market effectively. By incorporating Elliott Wave principles, traders can better understand the underlying market dynamics and make informed decisions to capitalize on future price movements in Cocoa.
