Gold enters bull market - where next?


Recommended Posts

The recent push up in the price of gold means that it is now, technically, in another bull market. The price has risen over 20% since the lows seen back in September 2022.

Gold has just tipped over into bull market today, which means it's up over 20% from the recent lows.

There’s a couple of things going on behind all this. First of all, it's the geopolitics and this continues to see money going into gold as a safe haven. We've got the inflationary aspect as well - two big factors that are giving some sort of support to what's going on with the price of gold.

US dollar basket

I think this is best illustrated if you look at what's happening as well in the foreign exchange markets, the dollar. Before we get to the gold chart, I want to show you the dollar basket because the dollar basket is pulling back. Anything priced in dollars gets this extra lift that we've got.


So there's a number of factors contributing to this move up in the price of gold. But look at this run that we've had from the lows we had back on the 28th of September when we were looking at levels of 1616. And you can see if we look back on that, that was the lowest print that we've seen there since the 8th of April 2020.

But look at the shape of this, the way that it's waving back here. And this is quite a good run that we've got from those lows that we had up to where we are at at 1940. This market is now up 20.23% from those lows. So it is now in a technical bull market.

Where's it go from here? As you can see here there's not actually much stopping it now, from where we are at 1940, all the way up to 2000, which was the spike higher we had back on the 18th of April so far as the record high was concerned. Well, that was back in March 2022, when that market was up at almost 2100 per ounce, we’re quite a way from there, but certainly in some people's eyes, that's the price target to go for.

    • Another reason I prefer DAX to other markets is that I am able to use my own profitable method on it, which I call "Reverse Trades." In it's simplest form it is a good Entry Point, which is used repeatedly for trades, for as many times as the market price returns to this Entry Point.  This is illustrated in the chart below for 22nd May. The best Reverse Trades occur when the market beats the Entry Price and then re-crosses the Entry Price. If this is not clear, feel free to write to me and I will explain in greater detail.
    • The gaming industry is one of the industries that has effectively leveraged the efficiency of blockchain technology to drive growth. A fiercely competitive sector, it takes unique innovative Ideas to stand out. When analysing the chances of infant GameFi projects to reach the heights, one project seems to have staked a claim to be soon held in the same breath as the leading projects– Param Labs. Param Labs, an AAA game and blockchain development studio is dedicated to creating top-tier blockchain-integrated games with player-owned digital assets, and is developing a modular gaming ecosystem, comprised of games and infrastructure.  Already a trending project thanks to the widespread participation of its airdrop, Param has gone on to strike partnership with Animoca Brands, a frontrunner for advancing digital property rights within gaming and the open metaverse; highlighting its wildfire-esque spread. While the buzzing community anticipate their airdrop reward, the news that it will launch on Bitget on 29th May amongst other exciting listings has spiked the anticipation. If you can relate, how excited are you with the imminent launch and what Param Labs brings to the gaming industry generally?
    • Hey all, as some of you know, I've been reviewing quite a few new crypto projects lately and breaking down what they're about and the problems they aim to solve. Today, I'll be doing the same for a platform called HiveSwap. HiveSwap is a decentralized exchange operating specifically within the Bitcoin ecosystem. It utilizes the MAP Protocol to enable interoperability and facilitate seamless token swaps across Bitcoin's various layers - the base layer, layer 2 networks, and the MAP interoperability layer itself. A major selling point is HiveSwap's ability to bridge the gap and allow swaps between Bitcoin ecosystem assets and those from major EVM chains like Ethereum, BNB Chain, Polygon, and more. This cross-chain functionality is huge. The platform is also tackling liquidity issues for emerging asset classes like inscriptions and BTC-related tokens. HiveSwap provides a decentralized avenue for swapping these types of assets and creating liquidity pools, rather than being confined to centralized venues. With its robust underlying swap technology framework, HiveSwap ensures reliability and security for users contributing liquidity. It also incentivizes liquidity provision through liquidity mining rewards paid out in tokens. Overall, HiveSwap is positioning itself as the leading decentralized exchange within the Bitcoin realm. It's solving key interoperability challenges, bringing much-needed liquidity to newer assets, and leveraging proven tech for secure, trustless cross-chain/cross-layer swaps. HiveSwap is bridging multiple gaps in Bitcoin DeFi.
