The price of precious metals gold, platinum and silver have shown some bullish intent in recent weeks, although gains have tempered leading into the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting minutes.

While much of near-term direction for these will be dictated by movements in the dollar, the technical view is moderately bullish over the near term.

Gold

The price of gold has recently broken above trendline and horizontal resistance (1735) before starting to pullback from overbought territory. The initial move higher sees the 20-day simple moving average (red line) crossing above the 50-day simple moving average (green line) suggesting that the short to medium term trends having reversed from down to up.

The price is now finding support on the 1735 level which had previously acted as resistance.

For long entry we are looking for confirmation that the pullback has ended and that the short to medium term uptrends are continuing. To satisfy this criteria, we would like to see positive price action with a close above the 1750 level. In this scenario, 1785 and 1805 become respective upside targets from the move, while a close below 1735 could be used as a failure level for the setup (should it manifest).

Platinum

The price of platinum has recently broken out of a broad range trading environment (between levels 830 and 970), before rallying to a new short-term high at 1060.

Since reaching this high the price has pulled back to support (previously resistance) at 970. Currently the platinum price looks to be reversing off this support level possibly setting up to renew gains.

The 20-, 50- and 200-day simple moving averages (red, green and blue lines) on our chart support the notion that the trend bias for the precious metal remains up.

1060 becomes the next upside resistance target favoured from the reversal off support. Traders who are long might consider using a close below the 970-support level as a stop loss indication for the trade.

Silver

The price of silver has also recently broken out of a broad range trading environment (between levels 18.15 and 20.80), before rallying to a new short-term high at 22.25.

Since reaching this high the price has pulled back to support (previously resistance) at 2080. Currently the price of silver looks to be reversing off this support level possibly setting up to renew gains.
The 20-, 50- and 200-day simple moving averages (red, green and blue lines) on our chart supports the notion that the trend bias for the precious metal remains up.

22.25 becomes the next upside resistance target favoured from the reversal off support. Traders who are long might consider using a close below the 2080-support level as a stop loss indication for the trade.

    • The mischievous amphibian who became a meme legend? Well, meet Apu, his wide-eyed, optimistic cousin, taking the internet by storm – and now, perhaps, the world of finance. Apu, also known as Peepo or Helper, is a kinder, gentler Pepe variant. Tired of the often-scammy memecoin scene, Apu (or rather, Apu's devoted community) decided to create something different: $APU, a "fairly launched, fully transparent coin" built by and for "all frens." Here's where things get interesting. $APU's narrative is one of resilience and community power. Fueled by the cryptocurrency community's enthusiasm, $APU was initially launched with the best of intentions. However, the dream took a nasty turn when the original developer pulled the rug – a disheartening scenario for many crypto enthusiasts. Today, $APU stands as a testament to community empowerment. It's a beacon of hope for projects facing similar challenges, a reminder that collaboration and resilience can transform setbacks into stepping stones. It's also worth noting that another community-driven memecoin, $MASSA, recently found a home on the Bitget exchange. Could this be a sign of things to come for $APU? What are your thoughts? Does Apu's story inspire you? Can a memecoin truly become a legitimate force in the volatile world of cryptocurrency? Share your thoughts and predictions in the comments below!
    • The price shown on the graph is the price after the IG's fee taken. That is the reason for discrepancy.
    • I am a relatively newbie. I have seen similar and also have seen automated closed position has a loss though the close price I have set was above the price I have bought. After about 6 months with a lot of mysterious losses though my closing price was above the opening price, I discovered this was because of the amount charged for opening/closing a position. This is right below BUY and SELL boxes on the right in very small font. This amount vary from  0.9 to 33 or more depending on the level of trading at the time you open or close. It also happens (god knows why it is set to be so, except that the trader is not watching) when there is a lot of buying and selling going on, like an important news has suddenly been out and the result was not the market expected. As a result, I delete all my automated BUY/SELL values before I stop trading for the day. Remember, the the software is set up to favor the IG, not the retail seller. That is why 70% or more end up in loss.
