Gold has been hit hard of late, but will the precious metal fall further despite the risk-off sentiment evident throughout financial markets?

Gold falls to nine-month low

Gold has been hit hard over the course of the past four months, with the precious metal falling from the early-month peak of $2070 to the $1734 level seen today.

That 16% decline comes despite a risk-off environment that many would deem supportive of haven assets.

Dollar strength dominates

One of the aspects that has dented demand for gold is the huge surge we have seen for the dollar, with the greenback providing the haven of choice throughout this crisis.

In an environment of market decline, we often see funds flow out of all assets, and precious metals can similarly come under pressure when such a selloff takes shape. As such, the dollar has provided a more reliable haven asset for traders, with the greenback gaining thanks to beneficial interest rate expectation differentials, and a lower economic risk from the Russian conflict compared with Europe.

Below we can see how the EUR/USD pair often shows a positive correlation with gold. On this occasion, we have seen EUR/USD reach a 19-year low. We are expecting to see further weakness for the pair as the dollar appreciates, thus bringing risk for gold going forward.

Treasury yields worth watching

Looking at US treasury yields, the 10-year yield had already seen sharp gains in the first quarter of the year.

Despite risks evident from the Russia crisis, the chart below highlights how we have simply entered a consolidation phase. The inverted 10-year US treasury yield is often correlated with the price of gold, and thus it is worthwhile watching for a potential reversal which could be beneficial for the precious metal.

Alternately, continued upside for yields could put pressure on gold as it heads towards a key support level.

Gold technical analysis

The weekly chart highlights how this recent decline has taken place off the back of a rally into the 2020 high of $2075. This decline has taken us back into a support zone that is formed of three lows from the past two years.

A break below the $1683 would certainly create significant anxiety for gold bulls given the risk of further downside.

The daily chart provides a more granular view, with price encroaching on that crucial $1683 threshold. However, momentum could start to shift before long, with the stochastic well into oversold territory.

The existence of an oversold market is not a buying opportunity in itself, but a move back up through the 20 threshold can highlight a market exiting that bearish phase. A look at previous such occasions does show the potential for a significant move higher when price finally moves out of oversold.

Nevertheless, with price trending lower over recent months, there is a risk that any short-term pop could simply form another lower high before gold starts to come under pressure once again. Despite this risk, the wider long-term trend for gold remains bullish.

Whiole it has come under pressure of late, we are yet to break from that trend. With that in mind, we would need to break below $1683 for the bears to truly gain a strong foothold.

    • Wheat Elliott Wave Analysis Function - Trend Mode - Trend Structure -Impulse wave Position - Wave A of (B) Direction - Wave A of (B) is still in play Details -  Wheat daily and H4 have been adjusted due to how fast and deep decline from 720’4 has emerged. The long-term forecast on the daily chart shows that the surge to 720’4 is part of the impulse wave from March 2022. We are now in wave (5) which is expected to emerge into a 3-wave structure. Price now appears to be in wave A after which it will correct upside for B before returning downside. Overview: Since late May, grain prices have been falling sharply, with Wheat shedding over 20% since May 28th, 2024. This decline is about to erase the gains made from mid-April to late May. The nearly one-month sell-off adds to the long-term decline from March 2022, when Wheat traded at 1364’4. Currently trading at 571’4, Wheat is likely to fall further toward 500 in the coming weeks.   Daily Chart Analysis: The decline from March 2022 is forming a bearish impulse wave structure in the primary degree. The 5th wave is completing a diagonal structure, which has been the most time-consuming among the actionary waves, lasting nearly 21 months. The price is currently in wave (5) of 5 (circled), which will likely evolve into a 3-wave structure targeting the 500 major psychological level.   H4 Chart Analysis: The H4 chart shows the sub-waves of wave (5), which is now close to completing its first leg - wave A of (5). A corrective bounce is expected to follow for wave B before the price turns downside for wave C of (5) toward 500, provided the 720’4 pivot is not breached. Wheat and other grains are overwhelmingly bearish and may continue in this direction for the next several weeks before major bullish corrections begin.   In conclusion, Wheat prices remain bearish with potential for further declines, targeting the 500 psychological level, contingent on the completion of the current corrective wave B and the subsequent wave C of (5).

DIRECTION: Bottom in wave {iv}.   DETAILS: Looking for a triangle in wave {iv} of 3 as we have found resistance on TL2 at 200$.     TXN Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge 4Hr Chart, Texas Instruments Inc., ( TXN) 4Hr Chart TXN Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Counter Trend MODE: Corrective STRUCTURE: Triangle POSITION: Wave (e) of {iv}. DIRECTION: Bottom in (e).   DETAILS: Looking for wave (e) to be near completion to then resume higher and find support on top of 200$.   Welcome to our latest Elliott Wave analysis for Texas Instruments Inc. (TXN). This analysis provides an in-depth look at TXN's price movements using the Elliott Wave Theory, helping traders identify potential opportunities based on current trends and market structure. We will cover insights from both the daily and 4-hour charts to offer a comprehensive perspective on TXN's market behavior.   * TXN Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – Daily Chart* In our Elliott Wave analysis of Texas Instruments Inc. (TXN), we observe a counter-trend corrective pattern characterized by a triangle structure. TXN is currently positioned in wave {iv} of 3, suggesting a bottoming process in wave {iv}. The recent price action indicates that TXN has encountered resistance around the TL2 trendline at $200. This resistance could imply the formation of a triangle in wave {iv}, setting the stage for a potential resumption of the upward trend once the triangle completes. Traders should monitor the $200 level for signs of a breakout or further consolidation within the triangle.   *TXN Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – 4Hr Chart* On the 4-hour chart, TXN is following a counter-trend corrective mode within a triangle structure, specifically in wave (e) of {iv}. The current analysis suggests that wave (e) is nearing completion, which could signal the end of the triangle and the beginning of a move higher. The completion of wave (e) should ideally find support above the $200 level, aligning with the daily chart's indication of a possible upward resumption post-triangle. Traders should watch for the termination of wave (e) and the subsequent price action to confirm a bullish continuation.   Technical Analyst : Alessio Barretta Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!
