A soaring USD, broken key tech levels and falling inflation expectations have exacerbated the sell-off in gold in recent days. Alongside this and as I pointed out last week, a death cross, which has now formed, had been looming and thus providing another bearish signal for gold. However, as I noted previously, I am typically sceptical of these indicators working consistently and despite the subsequent price action on this occasion, I still stand by that view. A death cross or golden cross should not be the sole reason to enter a trade, merely add to your current thesis as to why you are making that trade. For me, I have been bearish on gold for a while, with the sharp rise in US real yields being a key factor, as well as the break through 1880 (Russia invasion/SWIFT sanction reaction level) further solidifying my view that we had peaked in gold.

From a technical point, the break below 1760 was significant and will now represent resistance. While the catalyst for yesterday’s drop had been the overall better than feared ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI data. Given that gold has slipped into oversold conditions for the first time since August 2021, a bounce back to key resistance (1760) can be expected. That being said, on the downside, aside from mild support at 1720, the big area for bears is 1685-90. Looking ahead, the focus will remain on US data for the next 24hrs, most notably tomorrow’s jobs report where markets appear to be positioning for a soft report given the contractions in both the ISM Non-Mfg and Mfg PMI sub-components.

    • I believe this is nothing but a witch hunt cos apparently Binance is on its way to been the biggest company world over. Also, there are rumours that all this hapenings could be BlackRock making a move to clear the house ahead of the most awaited ETF. Notwithstanding, i took precautionary measures and moved my funds to Bitget and Bybit, better to be safe than sorry yah.
    • Crypto industry maybe seen as one of the fastest growing industries in the world today, boasting of a remarkable growth that is capable of making many forget in a hurry all the hurdles it had to beat during its infancy. Although not void of limitations still, no industry is anyways, it has well exceeded early expectations and earned global interest. So scrolling through my Instagram feeds today and seeing the footballing icon and 8th time Ballon d'or winner, Lionel Messi’s post of him celebrating his 1 year anniversary partnership with the crypto exchange, Bitget, I was left reminiscing all the challenges the industry had to overcome to get to where it is today. As a crypto enthusiast who is eager to see the industry reach greater heights, such high-profile partnership thrills me. For one, for the industry to leap further, the issue of lack of trust must be resolved. Lionel Messi well understands his position in his country Argentina as a demi-god, his 500m global followers on IG idolise him. He and his crew must have done their background checks before endorsing the crypto exchange to protect his reputation and also for his followers’ interest. The global reach from this partnership is also a win for the exchange and the industry in general. It portrays the exchange as trustworthy and reliable, and readily welcomes newbies, further boosting crypto adoption. 2009-2023 has been an adventurous journey for the crypto industry, there might have been some tides here and there but the ship is sailing smoothly. Has crypto industry striked mainstream adoption to afford sealing high-profile partnerships like this? 
    • Binance's former CEO, Changpeng Zhao, has admitted to violating US anti-money laundering laws, which may result in him facing jail time. This news comes as a surprise to many, as CZ is highly regarded in the industry, unlike some other exchange founders who have been caught engaging in fraudulent activities.   The US Justice Department is now seeking a longer prison sentence than the initial 12-18 months and has also denied CZ's request to travel despite his trial starting in February 2024.   Following the news of Binance CZ's guilty plea, more than $1 billion was withdrawn from Binance as investors sought out more secure options due to the uncertainty surrounding the exchange and US regulations.   This raises the question of how this situation will impact the long-term future of cryptocurrency, as well as which exchanges are best for investors at this time.
