Gold Q3 2022 Forecast: Fundamental Outlook Weakens

Gold Price Forecast: Bullion Lower but Remains Buoyed by Geopolitics

As anticipated in the Q2’22 gold forecast, the main catalyst that drove gold prices higher in Q1’22 – the Russian invasion of Ukraine – proved to be a short-lived catalyst. The conflict has been largely contained, insofar as the European Union, the United States, and NATO have not been drawn in. The net-result: gold prices erased all their gains from Q1’22 in Q2’22, and now are effectively unchanged year-to-date.

Our longstanding rationale remains valid and was brought back into focus as Q2’22 progressed: central banks, including the Federal Reserve, have begun to winddown pandemic-era stimulus efforts, with rate hike cycles just getting started. Inflation expectations remain relatively stable, and amid rising nominal yields, real yields have risen sharply in recent months.

The challenge for gold prices in Q3’22 persists barring further escalation in the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, drawing in the EU, the US, and NATO into a widespread conflict, there are few bullish catalysts on the horizon. The macro fundamental environment should prove increasingly difficult for gold prices as Q3’22 progresses, particularly now that all major central banks – save the Bank of Japan – have wound down their stimulus efforts.

US REAL YIELDS A HEADWIND, STILL

We’ve been a bit of a broken record for the past few quarters, but that’s because the obstacles in front of gold prices have not changed in a material fashion. Central banks acting more aggressively to arrest persistently higher realized inflation in the short-term are pushing up sovereign bond yields across the curve. Longer-term inflation expectations have not risen significantly, sending higher real yields.

Gold, like other precious metals, does not have a dividend, yield, or coupon, thus rising sovereign real yields – particularly US real yields – remain problematic. Put another way, when other assets are offering better risk-adjusted returns, or more importantly, offering tangible cash flows during a time when inflation pressures are raging, then assets that don’t yield significant returns often fall out of favor. Gold behaves, in effect, like a long duration asset (as measured by modified duration, not Macaulay duration); a zero-coupon bond.

The circumstances surrounding gold prices haven’t changed, even as the Russian invasion of Ukraine is set to enter month five. Pandemic era fiscal and monetary stimulus are a historical footnote, unlikely to be revived anytime soon. As Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has provoked higher food and energy prices in economies like the EU, the US, and the UK, central banks will continue to raise interest rates aggressively during Q3’22.

Accordingly, rising real rates are still a headwind for gold prices over the next few months. Over the past five years, gains by US real yields have been generally correlated with losses by gold prices. A simple linear regression of the relationship between the weekly price change in gold prices and the weekly basis points change for the US 10-year real yield, reveals a correlation of -0.30. As a rule of thumb, rising real yields are bad for gold prices, ceteris Paribas.

GOLD’S SHINE TO FURTHER WEAR

In a sense, not much has changed. To reiterate what was said in the Q2’22 forecast, “barring World War 3, it’s difficult to envision how the environment becomes any more appealing for gold prices from a fundamental perspective.” Over the next few months, gold prices have two likely paths forward: sideways (elevated food and energy prices pushed inflation expectations higher as central banks raise rates, keeping the status quo in real yields); or lower (stability in inflation expectations as central banks raise rates, pushing higher real yields).

Gold Q3 2022 Technical Forecast: Gold Correction Searches for a Low

Gold Price Outlook Mired by Failure to Defend March Low

 

Gold prices head into the start of Q3 trading just above the objective yearly open with XAU/USD still holding multi-year uptrend support. While the broader outlook remains constructive, the threat for a deeper correction in the medium-term rises after numerous failed attempts to break resistance. These are the levels we’re tracking into the open of Q3.

The March rally failed just ahead of the record highs at 2075 with the subsequent pullback taking prices back into yearly open support at1829. IF prices are indeed heading higher, losses would need to be limited to the 2008/2015 slope parallel with broader bullish invalidation set to the March 2021 monthly close low in 1707.

A closer look at the weekly chart shows gold resting just above a key Fibonacci confluence we’ve been tracking at 1818/29. We’re looking for possible inflection off this range with a close below the low-week close at 1791 needed to shift the focus towards confluent uptrend at 1729 -- an area of interest for possible downside exhaustion IF reached.

KEY FIBONACCI CONFLUENCE

Resistance stands at the 38.2% retracement of the March decline / 2021 high-close at 1903- a breach / weekly close above this threshold would be needed to invalidate the multi-month downtrend with such a scenario exposing the 61.8% retracement at 1962 and the yearly high-week close at 1988.

BOTTOM LINE

Gold is resting on a key pivot range around the yearly open. The focus heading into Q3 is on a break of the 1818-1903 range with the threat weighted to the downside while below the March trendline. We’re on the lookout for an exhaustion low in the third quarter – ultimately a larger pullback may offer more favourable opportunities closer to uptrends support.

    • Swiss Market Index Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Day Chart, Swiss Market Index Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Trend MODE: impulsive STRUCTURE: gray wave 1 POSITION: orange wave 3 DIRECTION NEXT LOWER  DEGREES: gray wave 2 DETAILS: gray wave 1 of orange wave 3 is in play. Wave Cancel invalid level: 11130.21 The Swiss Market Index Elliott Wave Analysis on the day chart offers insights into the market's trend using the Elliott Wave Principle. The analysis categorizes the current function as a trend, indicating that the price movements are aligned with the prevailing market direction. The mode is impulsive, suggesting that the market is in a strong, directional phase rather than experiencing a corrective or sideways movement.   The wave structure currently under observation is gray wave 1, which is part of a larger sequence identified as orange wave 3. This implies that the market is in the early stages of a significant upward movement, with gray wave 1 representing the initial phase of this advance.   The position of the market within these waves is critical for understanding its future direction. Currently, gray wave 1 of orange wave 3 is actively developing. This stage is essential as it sets the foundation for subsequent waves, indicating the market's potential for continued upward momentum. The direction for the next lower degrees, which will follow, is gray wave 2. This suggests that after the completion of gray wave 1, a corrective phase will ensue before the market resumes its upward trend in orange wave 3.   An important detail in this analysis is the invalidation level set at 11130.21. This level is crucial for traders and analysts as it acts as a threshold for the validity of the current wave count. If the market price drops to or below this level, the existing Elliott Wave structure would be invalidated, necessitating a reassessment of the wave patterns and potential adjustments in trading strategies.   In summary, the Swiss Market Index Elliott Wave Analysis on the day chart indicates that the market is in a strong upward trend, with gray wave 1 of orange wave 3 currently in play. This impulsive mode suggests continued upward momentum, with gray wave 2 expected to follow as a corrective phase. The invalidation level at 11130.21 is a critical benchmark for maintaining the validity of this wave count, ensuring that market strategies can be adjusted if necessary. This analysis helps traders anticipate market movements and refine their strategies based on the Elliott Wave patterns.     Swiss Market Index Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Weekly Chart, Swiss Market Index Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Trend MODE: impulsive STRUCTURE: orange wave 3 POSITION:  navy blue wave 3 DIRECTION NEXT LOWER  DEGREES:   orange wave 4                                         DETAILS: orange wave 2 of 3 looking completed at 11130.21. Now orange wave 3 is in play. Wave Cancel invalid level: 11130.21 The Swiss Market Index Elliott Wave Analysis on the weekly chart provides an in-depth look into the market's directional trends using the Elliott Wave Theory. This analysis identifies the function as a trend, indicating that the market is moving in a consistent, identifiable direction. The mode is classified as impulsive, which suggests strong and definitive price movements rather than a corrective or sideways trend.   The primary wave structure currently being analyzed is orange wave 3, which is part of a larger sequence identified as navy blue wave 3. This classification is significant as it highlights that the market is in the midst of a major upward movement. Within this context, the position of the market is situated in navy blue wave 3, which further confirms the ongoing strength of the upward trend.   The direction for the next lower degrees will be orange wave 4. This indicates that after the completion of the current orange wave 3, a corrective phase is expected to follow before the market resumes its upward trajectory. This pattern helps traders anticipate a temporary pullback before the continuation of the broader uptrend.   A key detail in this analysis is the completion of orange wave 2 of 3 at the level of 11130.21. This completion marks the end of a corrective phase and the commencement of the impulsive orange wave 3, which is currently in play. The invalidation level is also set at 11130.21, which serves as a crucial threshold. If the market price falls to or below this level, the current wave count would be invalidated, necessitating a reevaluation of the wave structure and potentially altering trading strategies.   In summary, the Swiss Market Index Elliott Wave Analysis on the weekly chart suggests a strong upward trend within the impulsive mode of orange wave 3. The market is currently in navy blue wave 3, with the next anticipated phase being orange wave 4. The completion of orange wave 2 at 11130.21 indicates that orange wave 3 is now in progress. The invalidation level at 11130.21 is critical for maintaining the integrity of this wave count. This analysis aids traders in understanding market movements and refining their strategies based on the Elliott Wave patterns, anticipating both the continuation of the trend and potential corrective phases.   Technical Analyst : Malik Awais Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!
