Gold Price Bottled-Up By Incoming US Data and Risk Barrage

  • FOMC and US data dominate the landscape.
  • Short-term trading range narrows.
  • Retail traders add to their long positions.

Gold is trading in a very tight range since last Friday as traders and investors wait for a rush of heavyweight US economic data, the latest FOMC policy decision, and a deluge of US company earnings that may well set the risk trend for the coming days and weeks. Coming up today, the latest look at US consumer confidence, while in the equity space, Microsoft and Alphabet A+C report, three of the top 10 S&P 500 companies by weighting. Wednesday’s FOMC decision is the main event this week with the market pricing in a 75 basis point rate hike, and post-hike commentary will likely drive the next US dollar move.

    • Charting the Markets - February 6, 2023 FTSE 100, DAX and S&P 500 tiptoe lower following strong US jobs report. EUR/USD and GBP/USD are topping out while EUR/GBP rallies. And gold, Brent crude, and natural gas head lower, as payrolls strengthen the dollar.                         This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
    • Natural gas has been in a consistent downtrend over recent months, and Joshua Mahony expects to see this decline continue. Josh therefore favours a short position, with a stop-loss at 2630 and target of 2232. He also looks back at the recent EUR/USD, USD/JPY, aluminium, and USD/CAD trades.

    • What do we now know about the economic outlook given the meetings this week at the Federal Reserve (Fed), Bank of England (BoE) and European Central Bank (ECB)? IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor caught up with foreign exchange analyst Richard Snow, from Daily FX, who discussed the potential continuation of the long EUR/USD trade.
