GOLD, XAU/USD, IG CLIENT SENTIMENT, US PCE DATA, GLOBAL RECESSION WOES - TALKING POINTS:

  • Gold prices fell on Thursday despite softer US core PCE data
  • The fundamental backdrop remains tough for the yellow metal
  • Retail traders remain heavily long gold, a bearish market signal

Gold prices weakened over the past 24 hours, sinking almost 0.6%. It was a soft ending for the second quarter, with the yellow metal weakening 6.66% over the past 3 months. That was the worst performance since the first quarter of 2021. Moreover, XAU/USD remains unchanged from levels achieved in the summer of 2020.

Interestingly, the anti-fiat yellow metal weakened despite a combination of favorable factors. Namely, both the US Dollar and Treasury yields weakened on Thursday. This was in response to softer-than-expected PCE core data. The latter is the Federal Reserve’s preferred inflation gauge, and it showed a sign of cooling underlying price pressures.

That said, sentiment was unable to capitalize on the potential of a less hawkish Fed, perhaps due to rising concerns about a US recession. The Fed is in a tough spot. Due to its inaction on rising inflation from last year, the central bank must pivot more aggressively to compensate for its lack of activity. Moreover, monetary tightening across the globe is not a fundamentally friendly environment for precious metals.

The US Independence Day holiday on Monday is making for a long weekend. Gold volatility could remain subdued before markets close this week. US ISM manufacturing PMI data is due over the remaining 24 hours. A 54.5 outcome is seen for June, down from 56.1 prior. Outside of a material surprise in either direction, XAU/USD may remain glued to prevailing market sentiment

GOLD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS
The decline in gold as of late has brought XAU/USD deeper into the 1787 – 1810 support zone. Clearing this range could be a sign of further pain to come for the yellow metal. Guiding the pair lower has been a falling trendline from March. In the event of a turn higher, this line could reinstate the dominant downside focus. Extending losses would place the focus on the early 2022 low at 1778 before the December low at 1753 comes into play.

GOLD TECHNICAL PRICE FORECAST: XAU/USD WEEKLY TRADE LEVELS

Gold Prices Today: Yellow metal to remain range-bound amid volatility as US  inflation data and RBI meeting in focus

Gold prices plunged 0.5% this week with XAU/USD on pace for a third consecutive weekly sell-off into the close of June. The decline takes prices below a key support pivot we’ve been tracking for months now and the threat remains for a deeper correction towards longer-term uptrend support heading into the July / Q3 open. These are the updated targets and invalidation levels that matter on the XAU/USD weekly technical price chart. Review my latest Weekly Strategy Webinar for an in-depth breakdown of this gold technical setup and more.

    • Asian-Pacific stocks traded mostly flat to start the week, with light weekend newsflow focused on geopolitics. In Europe, equity futures point to a lower open after gains on Friday. The calendar this week focuses on inflation , with Japan kicking off the world tour of price data today. This is followed up by US PCE data on Wednesday, German CPI on Thursday and then the eurozone reading on Friday. While today begins quietly on the earnings front, UK earnings crowd the rest of the week, taking over from the US as reporting season there enters its final weeks.

Wave Cancel invalid level: 0.60512 The "NZDUSD Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Day Chart" dated 26 February 24, provides a comprehensive analysis of the New Zealand Dollar/U.S. Dollar (NZDUSD) currency pair on a daily timeframe, employing Elliott Wave principles to discern potential market movements. The designated "FUNCTION" is "Trend," indicating the primary objective is to identify and capitalize on the prevailing market direction. In this context, the focus is on capturing impulsive waves that define the strength and persistence of the overarching trend. The specified "MODE" is "Impulsive," signaling a market environment characterized by strong, forceful, and directional price movements. This suggests that the current phase in the market is conducive to identifying and participating in the primary trend. The described "STRUCTURE" is "Blue wave 1," denoting the specific wave within the Elliott Wave hierarchy. Blue wave 1 represents the initial phase of a larger impulsive move, typically marking the beginning of a new trend. The identified "POSITION" is "Black wave 3," indicating the current position within the broader Elliott Wave pattern. Wave 3 is often the most dynamic and extended wave in the sequence, reflecting a powerful surge in the direction of the dominant trend. In terms of "DIRECTION NEXT LOWER DEGREES," the analysis emphasizes "Blue wave 2," suggesting the anticipated corrective phase following the completion of black wave 3. The "DETAILS" section notes that "black wave 2 looking completed at 0.60363. Now blue wave 1 of black wave 3 is in play." This suggests the conclusion of a corrective phase (black wave 2) and the initiation of the next impulsive move (blue wave 1 of black wave 3). The "Wave Cancel invalid level" is set at 0.60512, serving as a critical reference point. A breach beyond this level would invalidate the current wave count and prompt a reevaluation of the analysis. In summary, the NZDUSD Elliott Wave Analysis for the daily chart on 26 February 24, indicates a continuation of the impulsive move, with blue wave 1 of black wave 3 in progress. Traders are advised to monitor the unfolding of blue wave 1 and consider the invalidation level at 0.60512.       NZDUSD Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge 4 Hour  Chart, 26 February 24 New Zealand Dollar/U.S.Dollar (NZDUSD) 4 Hour Chart NZDUSD Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION:   Trend MODE: Impulsive STRUCTURE: red wave 3   POSITION:  Blue wave 1 DIRECTION NEXT LOWER DEGREES: red wave 4 DETAILS:red wave 2 of blue wave 1 looking completed at 0.60512 .  Now red wave 3 of blue wave 1  is in play.

This suggests an interest in identifying and riding the impulsive waves that contribute to the overall trend.

Impulsive waves typically indicate the primary trend's strength and persistence. The described "STRUCTURE" is "Red wave 3," highlighting the current position within the larger Elliott Wave pattern. Wave 3 is often the strongest and longest phase of the Elliott Wave cycle, representing a powerful surge in the direction of the dominant trend. The designated "POSITION" is "Blue wave 1," indicating the specific wave within the Elliott Wave hierarchy. Blue wave 1 represents the initial phase of the larger trend cycle and marks the beginning of a new impulsive move. In terms of "DIRECTION NEXT LOWER DEGREES," the analysis emphasizes "Red wave 4," suggesting the anticipated correction or consolidation phase following the completion of red wave 3. The "DETAILS" section notes that "red wave 2 of blue wave 1 looking completed at 0.60512. Now red wave 3 of blue wave 1 is in play." This indicates the conclusion of a corrective phase (red wave 2) and the commencement of the next impulsive move (red wave 3 of blue wave 1). The "Wave Cancel invalid level" is set at 0.60512. This level serves as a crucial reference point, beyond which the current wave count would be considered invalid. In summary, the NZDUSD Elliott Wave Analysis for the 4-hour chart on 26 February 24, suggests a continuation of the impulsive move, with red wave 3 of blue wave 1 in progress. Traders are advised to monitor the unfolding of red wave 3 and consider the invalidation level at 0.60512. Technical Analyst : Malik Awais
