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.

    • It would be difficult and the next line of action would be withdrawal of assets to a good alternative exchange or wallet and observe how the whole drama will end 
    • The recent turbulence in the market has resulted in significant losses and liquidations for many traders. While futures trading offers the potential for rapid portfolio growth, it also carries considerable risks, demanding both bravery and a strong belief in technical analysis (TA). However, despite my attempts, futures trading hasn't been my strong suit. Creating a resilient crypto portfolio doesn't necessarily mean diving into high-risk ventures like futures trading. It took me some time to realize that there are alternative, nearly risk-free methods to build a solid portfolio. Yet, the allure of quick profits in crypto often overshadows the patience required for these strategies. Whether you're involved in futures or spot trading, the market's unpredictability can lead to significant losses, as demonstrated by the recent downturn affecting BTC and most altcoins. Many traders found themselves unprepared, lacking sufficient USDT reserves for dollar-cost averaging (DCA) during market recoveries. Nevertheless, there is hope. For those looking to maximize profits while minimizing risks, products such as launchpools, launchpads, or PoolX offer promising opportunities. Available on various top centralized exchanges (CEX), these platforms involve staking assets like USDT, BGB, BNB, or OKB, depending on the exchange. One observation I've noted is that whenever an exchange announces a launchpool or launchpad event, the value of the exchange token tends to soar. This surge is fueled by users eager to participate and earn complimentary tokens. Following the event, participants can benefit from both the acquired tokens and the increased value of the exchange token. This approach has proven successful for me, as evidenced by the recent ENA launchpool event on Bitget. Have you explored similar opportunities in the past? Please feel free to share your experiences.
