Gold Price Outlook: Gold Falls to Critical Support



A firmer USD and a renewed rally in global bond yields have dragged gold prices, breaking through mild support at 1720-25 to now look at falling through 1700. What’s more, rising China growth concerns as another city will be placed under lockdown measures also add to the pressure on both gold and silver. Recent talk of the ECB gearing up for a 75bps rate hike is likely to keep the precious metal under pressure until next week’s monetary policy meeting. As such, a close below 1700 opens the door back towards key support at 1675-85, while the 200WMA also sits at 1670. Now while technically this should offer good support, the key catalysts in dictating the next significant move will be the upcoming NFP and US CPI report. That being said, should gold close below 1670, the path of least resistance would be for a move towards 1600.

    • Sorry, I didn't get it... What's Dual investment? 
    • The crypto market appears to be showing signs of recovery, with significant improvements in the Sharpe Ratios of Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum, according to an article published on Friday.  The Sharpe Ratio, a measure used to understand the return of an investment compared to its risk, has seen a notable increase for both cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin's Sharpe Ratio has risen from -2.4 to 0.68, while Ethereum and BGB have also experienced a similar uptrend. This change signifies higher returns at lower risk, which is expected to attract more investors to the crypto market. In addition to the improved Sharpe Ratios, increased network activity and trading volume as shown on CEXs like Bitget, Binance, and a few DEXs are suggesting a healthier market state. The current trading prices of Bitcoin, reflect this overall positive market sentiment. As of Friday, Bitcoin was trading at $27,069.73, BGB at $0.454 and Ethereum at $1,677.89. These developments are significant as they indicate reduced risk in the crypto market. The increase in the Sharpe Ratios for Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum suggests that these cryptocurrencies are becoming less risky investments, which could potentially lead to an influx of new investors into the market.  Could this rise in Sharpe Ratios coupled with increased network activity and trading volume point towards a recovering and less risky crypto market?
