Gold Price Forecast: Gold Breaks Down to Key Support - CPI on Deck


Recommended Posts


  • Gold prices have pushed down to key support at 10-month lows.
  • USD strength, as driven by inflation has been a strong theme of late and that’s helping to drive the move in Gold – this week brings a CPI print out of the US on Wednesday and this could produce some additional drive in that move in Gold.
  • The big question is what happens at $1673 which is the current two-year-low in Gold and a price that’s held support through a couple of different iterations. A break-below that represents a further ‘pricing out’ of the same theme that propelled the breakout in the summer of 2020.

Gold Price Forecast: Gold Breaks Down to Key Support - CPI on Deck


Gold prices are on their backfoot and for the past four weeks, buyers haven’t been able to produce much to stand in the way of the downtrend. Prices found resistance at a key Fibonacci level in early-June, producing a rising wedge formation along the way. Rising wedges will often be approached with the aim of bearish reversals and that’s continued to play out as sellers have pushed prices all the way down to fresh 10-month-lows.

Current support has a bit of relevancy to that prior resistance, as well, as it was the 50% marker of the 2020-2021 move that helped to set that marker early last month, and the 14.4% retracement from that same study is coming into play this morning to try to help hold the low.

I had written about this setup in early-June just after the rising wedge was confirmed and a few days before the breakdown began.

    • It is a consensus that Web3 wallets offer users whole control over their assets, ensure protection against unauthorized access, deliver seamless access to the growing world of blockchain services and more. However one quality that many participants are yet to tap fully is the earning opportunities they unlock. So in my exploration to access those juicy opportunities, I’ve discovered quite a few on Bitget wallet. Earned good rewards from the previous ZETA airdrop, and now in line with offering an unparalleled rewarding trading experience in Web3, Bitget Wallet has launched a massive airdrop for its ecosystem token BWB. Scheduled to last from March 18 to April 28, participants are invited to download Bitget Wallet app on their devices and claim BWB by participating in events through the app—the more tasks completed, the more points you gain. I just think that considering that 164m BWB points have already been issued over the period of 5 weeks, with one more week to go, no better time to hop on this opportunity than now especially with a welcome bonus of 50 $BWB points up for grabs!
