XAU/USD TECHNICAL BACKDROP
Gold was buoyed in early trading after a yesterday’s slump with the U.S. dollar going into the European session weaker. Price action has remained largely unchanged since early May this year with the consolidatory move developing within various technical patterns.

 

TECHNICAL ANALYSIS


GOLD PRICE WEEKLY CHART

The long-term weekly chart shows this weeks candle approaching a key inflection point around trendline support (black), which has been propping up gold prices since mid-June 2019. A break below could trigger a selloff and will coincide with the break of the 100-day EMA (yellow) as well.

The daily spot gold chart shows prices hovering around the key inflection point at $1800.00 which coincides with the longer term formation. Currently, the breakout from the points to further downside towards subsequent support zones.

GOLD PRICE DAILY CHART

Zooming into the short-term daily chart, we can see that the symmetrical triangle (black) remains in play while prices continue to track within the bear flag (blue) chart pattern. Traditionally, a symmetrical triangle breakout can occur either up or down but with the arrival of the bear flag, our bias does skew towards the downside. The bear flag represents a continuation pattern supportive of the preceding short-term trend (bearish). I will be looking for a confirmation break below flag support but more importantly, trendline support and the psychological $1800 level. This being said, current market indecision is highlighted by the Relative Strength Index (RSI) on both the weekly and daily timeframes reading around the 50 mark which favors neither bullish or bearish momentum. This breakout is likely to occur on the back of a fundamental catalyst in the days/weeks to come but since we are approaching the triangle apex point, I do not see this being too far away.

    • Fears of a wider regional conflict in the Middle East weighed on market sentiment overnight, though a higher open is expected for the Dax. This flight to safety was triggered by news of an Iranian strike on Israel with hundreds of drones and missiles, raising concerns over potential Israeli retaliation. Safe-haven assets like gold and the US dollar strengthened, though the Japanese yen weakened to a 30-year low against the dollar, highlighting that interest rates remain the primary market focus despite geopolitical risks. Oil prices dipped in Asian trading as the risk of Iranian retaliation was already priced in last week. While the US has stated it will not take part in a counter-offensive against Iran, the volatility index remains near five-month highs, reflecting heightened market nervousness. Any further oil price increases could add to inflationary pressures, complicating central banks' efforts to control rising consumer prices. This week, markets will closely watch US economic data releases, including retail sales and comments from Federal Reserve officials, for clues on the monetary policy outlook amid persistent inflation concerns. The US earnings season is also underway, with mixed results from major banks getting the season off to a lacklustre start.
