Gold, Brent prices rally as London wheat consolidates below all-time high


Recommended Posts

The outlook on gold is cautiously bullish while crude oil probes resistance at $114 and London wheat pauses below its £361 all-time high.

 
 

Gold stages a minor recovery rally

Gold’s slip from its mid-April high at $1,998 has taken it all the way to yesterday’s low at $1,787 before it formed a Hammer on the daily candlestick chart and recovered towards the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) at $1,837 which is about to be reached.

Next up the early May low can be spotted at $1,851 and the April-to-May downtrend line at $1,855 which may well cap again, however.

Yesterday’s low was made right within the late December-to-January lows at $1,790 to $1,781 which unsurprisingly offered support. Failure at $1,781 would engage the December low at $1,754.

While the late April high at $1,919 caps, the recent downtrend remains intact.

Further up meanders the 55-day SMA at $1,923.

Brent crude oil flirts with $114 April high as traders eye EU ban

The price of Brent crude oil continues to be underpinned by robust global demand as traders closely watch developments around a proposed EU ban on Russian oil which would tighten global supply further.

Yesterday the European Union (EU) failed to pressure Hungary to lift its veto of a proposed oil embargo on Russia but despite this the price of Brent crude oil has risen four days in a row.

It is being pushed towards its $114.00 April peak, a rise and daily chart close above which would lead to the late March high at $120.48 being next in line.

If the price of oil were to struggle around the $114 mark, however, and slip back, the breached March-to-April downtrend line at $110.05 and also the 55-day SMA at $108.38 would be back in the frame.

For now the bulls seem to be firmly in charge, though.

London wheat prices are briefly coming off their all-time highs

Yesterday November 2022 London Wheat futures traded at their highest ever level of £361 per tonne after India announced on Saturday that it was closing its doors on wheat exports to cool local prices and ensure its supplies as a scorching heatwave curtailed output.

This comes on the back of adverse crop conditions in Europe and the US on top of the war in Ukraine and has pushed the price of London wheat up by over 50% since the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The November 2022 contract has come off yesterday’s all-time high at £361 and closed a price gap from last week whilst remaining within its steep one-month uptrend channel.

The lower channel line at £337 is likely to act as interim support, together with the 9 May high at £333.

A rise above the £361 high seen yesterday may lead to the minor psychological 400 mark being targeted.

    • US DOLLAR TALKING POINTS: The US Dollar has dropped by as much as 3.3% from the high that was set last Wednesday and many are asking if the USD has topped. Given how aggressively overbought the greenback had become, this retracement looks to be a correction in the trend with no evidence yet of anything larger. However – price is approaching some major supports and performance around those levels will be key for determining near-term strategy. Of particular importance is the fact that the US Dollar is a composite of global currencies so the bigger question is when sell-offs in EUR/USD or GBP/USD might return and, in a related item, how will USD/JPY hold up with the pair pegged to the 145 level thought to be the line-in-the-sand for Japan’s Ministry of Finance?

    • EUR/USD and GBP/USD edge up while USD/JPY falters at ¥145.00 again A pause in the dollar rally sees USD/JPY stuck below recent highs, but both the euro and sterling have made gains in early trading against the greenback.    Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 04 October 2022  EUR/USD rebound continues After falling to a twenty-year low last month, the euro continues to rebound against the US dollar with EUR/USD. This still looks very much like a counter-trend bounce that sees the price head back to the 50-day simple moving average (SMA), currently $1.1018 and then begins to falter. This would be in line with previous bounces since April, all of which have found it impossible to hold above the 50-day SMA. This move could see the price head back to $1.01. Further targets lie at $1.02 and then $1.0374. Source: ProRealTime GBP/USD recovers $1.13 The GBP/USD continues to defy the doomsters with a recovery above $1.13. Its own counter-trend bounce remains intact, and if previous bounces are any guide there is still some potential for upside, even if it only reaches the 50-day SMA. Like EUR/USD, the pound is still making lower highs and lower lows against the dollar, with the previous peak at $1.176 marking out the initial target for this bounce. Both stochastics and moving average convergence/divergence (MACD) have room to move up to support this move, but selling the rallies still appears to be the approach here for this downtrending market, although it looks like for now there is still a desire to push the pair higher in the short-term. Source: ProRealTime USD/JPY stalls below ¥145.00 It does look like ¥145.00 is the ceiling in USD/JPY for the time being – repeated attempts to break higher have come to naught, despite the continued strength of the US dollar. Indeed, it is perhaps precisely that we need a pullback in order for the trend to revive. The pair rallied hard from the August-lows, and now sits at some distance from the 50-day SMA (currently ¥139.15). A pullback towards this level might ‘clear the air’, create a higher low and provide a springboard for fresh bullish momentum. Source: ProRealTime
