  • Last week was the first green weekly bar in Gold since early-June, and this happened after a test of major support around current two-year-lows.
  • The FOMC rate decision on Wednesday is the big driver on the economic calendar and already Gold prices are testing the first zone of resistance, as taken from prior support.

Gold prices have seen prices continue to slide this summer, with last week finally bringing on that test of key support in the 1700 area. While prices did test below $1700, they didn’t cross the swing-low from last-August. Instead, buyers stepped in just before that price could be tested and that’s so far led to a slingshot-like retracement. That support test happened last Thursday and that was followed by a strong bullish response into last week’s close.

Thursday price action closed the daily bar as a bullish engulf and Friday saw continuation as prices jumped straight into the first zone of resistance, an area plotted from Fibonacci levels at 1723-1733. So far through the weekly open that zone of resistance has helped to hold the highs but sellers haven’t exactly taken-advantage of the situation just yet.

    • Why is this stock unavailable to open for non-Pro clients? Surely a fund is less risky than an individual stock.
    • Hi @Kgrp74 Thank you for reaching out.  HMRC rules don't allow you to hold foreign currency in an ISA, but you can still buy international shares. The gains on currency conversions are only seen and credited in the account once you sell the shares if the currency rate is favorable to you. We also have to consider the 0.5% spread added to the exchange rate and commission charges which would normally offset your profits.  Thanks, OfentseIG
    • DAX/CAC Technical Highlights: DAX reclaimed broken support, but rally still not viewed as bullish CAC 40 has trend-line resistance ahead to watch on further strength   DAX and CAC 40 Technical Outlook: Rally Viewed as Likely to Fail Soon   DAX Daily Chart   DAX Chart by TradingView   The CAC is trading around resistance in the 6k area, with a trend-line from the summer high lying not too far ahead. A turn down could find some initial support in the 5700s, but the low at 5628 is the big level to watch. Broad outlook is of course very similar to the DAX.   CAC Daily Chart   CAC 40 Chart by TradingView   Oct 6, 2022 | DailyFX Paul Robinson, Strategist
