Gold Price Update – Grinding Into Multi-Week Support


Recommended Posts


  • Gold nears multi-week support.
  • No new drivers seen for gold’s move.

Gold price has a chance to break out next week, here's why – analysts -  Laud Business

For all market-moving data releases and events, see the DailyFX Economic Calendar.

An interesting move in gold this morning with the precious metal on the cusp of testing short-term support. The precious metal fell on Monday after the release of weaker-than-expected U.S. CB consumer confidence data and there is little fresh news so far today to stem or fuel the next move. In the US Treasury market, yields are marginally lower – normally a gold supportive scenario – with the benchmark UST 10-year trading with a yield of 3.14%, down from 3.24% on Monday. US Treasury yields will continue to steer gold and with that in mind, US Fed chair Jerome Powell takes part in a panel discussion at the ECB Forum later today, alongside ECB President Christine Lagarde, BoE governor Andrew Bailey, and the Bank for International Settlements general manager Agustin Carstens. Any further clarity from the Fed chair may give gold a fresh stimulus.

Looking at the daily chart, gold remains biased to the downside. The short-term series of lower highs remain in place, while a near-complete series of lower lows add weight to lower prices. The precious metal remains below all three simple moving averages, while the 50-/200-day sma cross over – ‘death cross’ – adds to the chart’s gloomy outlook. The first level of support is seen at $1,805/oz. before $1,786/oz. comes into play.

    • The inclusion of trading volume as a standard indicator in charting software for the past three decades is not without reason—it offers a vital advantage. Volume analysis grants traders valuable insights into the actions of market participants at different price levels. By focusing on volume, traders can react more effectively to price movements rather than attempting to predict the future direction of prices, as is often the case with many other technical indicators. 📍Key points about volume Here are the key points regarding the volume indicator commonly plotted on the X-axis in trading: 🔹Volume Indicator: The volume indicator calculates the total number of shares or contracts traded during a specified time period. It is usually displayed as a histogram or line chart, with time represented on the X-axis. 🔹Liquidity: Volume is a critical metric as it provides insights into the liquidity of a security. Higher volume generally indicates greater market participation and liquidity, making it easier to buy or sell the asset without significantly impacting its price. 🔹Confirmation: Volume can validate the authenticity of price movements. In an uptrend, increasing volume supports the bullish move, indicating strength and conviction among buyers. Conversely, declining volume during an uptrend may signal weakness or lack of interest. The same principles apply to downtrends. 🔹Breakouts and Reversals: Volume analysis is often employed to identify breakouts and potential trend reversals. A significant increase in volume during a breakout suggests a higher probability of a sustained move, while decreasing volume near a support or resistance level might indicate a potential reversal. 🔹Divergence: Volume can unveil discrepancies between price and market sentiment. For instance, if prices are rising while volume is decreasing, it could suggest that the rally is losing momentum and a reversal may be imminent. Similarly, increasing volume during a price decline might indicate selling pressure and the potential for further downside. 🔹Confirmation of Patterns: Volume can serve to confirm or invalidate chart patterns such as triangles, head and shoulders, or double tops/bottoms. Higher volume during pattern formations enhances their reliability, while low volume can cast doubt on the significance of the pattern. 🔹Watch for High Volume: Unusual spikes in volume can indicate significant market events, such as earnings releases, news announcements, or institutional buying/selling. Abnormal volume levels can lead to increased volatility and potentially present trading opportunities. 🔹Relative Volume: Comparing current volume to historical average volume helps assess the significance of current trading activity. Higher volume relative to the average may imply increased interest, while lower volume might suggest a lack of conviction or reduced market participation.
